 Scheduling a meeting with the Zoom Pro tool in Courses

The Zoom Pro tool in Courses allows users with the 'Instructor' role to schedule meetings in class sites. This also provides a single location for students to access class materials, join online sessions, and locate class recordings.

Important: You must register for Pepperdine Zoom to use the "Zoom Pro" tool

Professors must first register for an official Pepperdine Zoom account at http://pepperdine.zoom.us. If you attempt to use the tool before you have registered, you will see a warning message, "Warning: The instructor's email (your email address) is invalid (####). Error Code ####." Simply register at http://pepperdine.zoom.us and then return to Courses.

  4. (Recommended) If you will be teaching online with a regular frequency, then schedule your sessions to occur as a recurring meeting. This has two advantages: a) it cuts down on confusion for students by utilizing the same meeting ID link for each meeting, and b) it saves you time from scheduling each meeting one at a time.Schedule a recurring meeting by clicking the checkbox adjacent to the "recurring meeting" label.
