Zoom is the preferred web conferencing tool at Lafayette and can now be added as a resource to your Moodle course.
A Zoom resource is a ‘one click’ access point within Moodle to a Zoom meeting that can be used for web conferencing with outside speakers, virtual office hours with students, or as a way for students within a course to connect with each other.
Upon clicking the Zoom resource in Moodle, users will be directed to “launch” Zoom. It will either open the Zoom application already downloaded on your computer or ask you to download it for the first time. Upon opening the Zoom app, the meeting will start. The Zoom meeting will function in the same fashion as using Zoom outside of Moodle.
