Add a Zoom Meeting

Add a Zoom Meeting in Isidore

Meetings can be scheduled or created on-the-fly inside of Isidore. Anyone in the instructor role can create meetings in the course site. Teaching assistants and students do not have the ability to create meetings in the course site.

Within the Zoom integration in Isidore, instructors have two tabs: Show Course Meetings and Show My Meetings.

"Show Course Meetings" will let you see meetings created by ANY instructor who has access to the course site.

"Show My Meetings" will let you see ONLY the meetings that you have created yourself in the course site.

    • Topic: Adjust the default topic title if desired.
    • When: Set a time the meeting room should open to participants (required). Please note that your meeting room will be active as soon as the host (you) join it, no matter when it has been scheduled.
    • Duration: Set a duration for the meeting (required). You may set a recurring schedule if desired. Please note that the meeting room will remain active as long as the host is present in the room, even if the duration has expired.

    • Audio: Change the audio options for participants.
    • Meeting options:

      • Require meeting password: This means that people will not be able to join the room unless they have the password. This could be useful in situations where you are trying to have a private meeting with a specific student and do not want anyone else to join.
      • Enabled Join Before Host: This option is disabled at UD.
      • Mute participants upon entry: This will mute participants mics when they join the room. They will have the option to unmute themselves at any time.
      • User Personal Meeting ID: Use this if you would like to use your personal meeting ID.
      • Enable waiting room: This feature allows the host to control when participants join the meeting. As the meeting host, you can admit attendees one by one or hold all attendees in the waiting room and admit them all at once. Participants will see a message letting them know that the meeting host will let them into the room soon.
      • Record the meeting automatically: This option allows the host to start recording automatically when the meeting starts.
    • Alternative hosts: Allows you to add an alternative host. Note: Adding an "alternative host" does not allow a host to schedule concurrent meetings. You may only host one meeting at a time.
