How do I create a Zoom meeting for me and my students?
You will learn a quick and easy way to create a Zoom meeting for you to use with your students in your course.
Zoom allows you to deliver your lecture live, permits your students to present to the class and gives voice to your guest speaker.
1. Login to the CSUF Portal.
Note: This is only necessary if this is the first time you are using your CSUF Zoom account. Otherwise, you can skip to Step 6.
1.1. Click on the Search field.
2. Type "Zoom".
3. Click on Web Meetings.
4. Click on Log in to Zoom.
5. Zoom page displays.
If desired, you can also create or join Zoom meetings from this page by clicking on Host a meeting or Join a meeting respectively.
6. Navigate to your course in TITANium.
7. Click on the Gear icon in the top right corner.
8. Select Turn editing on.
9. Click on Add an activity or resource.
Since this is a link that we will use for each class meeting, we should put it at the top of the course main page where students can easily click on it week after week.
10. Select External tool.
11. Click on Add.
12. Type a name for the link.
Tip: Type a title that will make sense to you and your students. Since this link is for a live Zoom lecture which takes place on Mondays at 10 a.m., I am adding that information to the title. If you want to use a link for Office Hours or Advising, then name it in a way that will be readily identifiable to your students.
13. Click on the dropdown menu and select Zoom.
14. Click on Privacy.
This Privacy step is only necessary if we do not want to create a new grade item in the gradebook.
15. Deselect Accept grades from the tool.
A gradebook grade column will not be created in our course.
16. Click on Save and return to course.
17. Your Zoom link is now ready to go.
You have now created a Zoom link which you and your students in this course can use as many times as needed.
You have now learned how to create a Zoom session in your course in TITANium for interacting with your students, delivering lectures, allowing student presentations, inviting guest speakers, etc.
