Information

The below video contains a brief (2-minute) demonstration on how to add a Zoom Link to your Blackboard Course. 

Before setting this up, both yourself and your students must activate your SPU Zoom accounts. Instructions on this can be found in our "Getting Started with Zoom at Saint Peter's University" Knowledge base article. 

When setting up this link, if you want students to be able to see it, make sure to tick the box that says "Available to Users". When students click it, they will see a dashboard containing all of the meetings you have set up for that Blackboard class, as well as an area where recordings will be kept (if enabled), and a button next to each scheduled meeting to allow your students to join from there. Again, both yourself and your students must activate your SPU Zoom accounts to be able to use this feature.
