Online meetings are a great way to connect with students and help them with course challenges. You might hold a live session to review before an exam or answer questions on a big assignment. The first step is to create an online meeting room for your class.

If you haven’t used Zoom previously, you’ll first need to go to zoom.albright.us. Log in using your LionLink (Albright network) credentials to activate your Albright account.

Then in your Moodle course, go to the section of your course page where you want to create the online meeting room. Click Add an activity or resource.

Click Add external tool.

Fill in the Activity name field. This name will appear on the course page as a link to the meeting. in the drop down menu, choose Zoom meeting. For Grade, choose none unless you want participation to be graded. At the bottom of the page, click Save and return to course.
