Schedule Your Zoom Meeting

Make sure you have first installed Zoom and signed into the app

Click Schedule meeting on the Zoom App

  1. Enter the name of your class/meeting/event in the Topic field
  2. Click “Recurring Meeting” if the Zoom meeting will be required on multiple dates/times, or enter the start date and time in the appropriate fields if a one-off event.
  3. Check you are happy with the other settings. Generally, the default settings are suitable for most meetings, however the “Waiting Room” option is a good security feature to help secure your event.
  4. Click “Other Calendar”
  5. Click “Save”

Your meeting is now setup and is available to use at anytime. You can copy the connection details (as highlighted below) and provide to your students via Blackboard or Moodle or send out to your attendees via email, calendar invite or your normal communication channel.

There are some additional settings that can be utilised by scheduling a meeting through your Zoom account on the web. There is some additional information on that here:
