Learn@Illinois Moodle - Creating a Zoom Activity in Moodle

Learn how to use Zoom in Moodle. You only need to add a Zoom activity to your course site once. Students will click on it to access all scheduled meetings. If you would like to have multiple Zoom links with different names such as "Virtual Office", "Study Lounge", or "Class session 1", simply keep adding Zoom activities following the instructions below. No matter the name, all Zoom activities will link to the same place.
