Share a Zoom Meeting From within Brightspace
Once you have created and scheduled your meeting, students enrolled in your course will be able to find information about the meeting through the Calendar widget on your Brightspace course homepage. If, for some reason, you turned off the Calendar widget, it is strongly recommended that you add it back to your course homepage, as this is how students will mainly see and access the Zoom meetings you created.
Here is an example of what your students will see in the Calendar widget when a Zoom meeting for their course has been added.
When you or a student clicks on that event in the calendar, they will be taken to a screen that will have a link to the actual Zoom meeting. This is how your students can join the meeting.
NOTE: If you are the instructor and creator of the Zoom meeting, this is NOT where you can start the meeting and be the host of the meeting. Follow the instructions in section 5 for starting the meeting as the host.
