Faculty - Creating a Zoom Meeting in your Course


Zoom is a web-based video conferencing tool that is available for use via your course in Blackboard. This article will show you how to create a Zoom meeting in your course. 

Note: It is recommended that faculty create Zoom meetings from their course in Blackboard.


1. Click the Zoom tool link you created in your course navigation menu  

2. Click on Schedule a New Meeting  

3. Give your meeting a Topic  

4. Enter When and Duration  

5.Select Video, Audio, and Meeting Options

  • Host video: Start meetings with the host's video on.
  • Participant video: Start meetings with the participants' video on.
  • Telephone and Computer Audio: Participants can join by telephone or by using their computer's microphone/speaker or headset.
  • Require a password when scheduling new meetings: A random password will be generated when scheduling a meeting. Participants need to enter the password to join the meeting.
  • Join before host: Allow participants to join the meeting before the host joins. If disabled, participants can only join after the host starts the meeting.
  • Mute participants upon entry: Automatically mute all participants when they join the meeting. The host controls whether participants can unmute themselves.
  • Enable waiting room: Allows the host to control when a participant joins the meeting. If the Waiting Room option is enabled, join before host will not work for that meeting.
  • Recording the meeting automatically: allows the host to start local recording or cloud recording automatically. It is recommended that recordings are saved to the cloud.
  • Alternative Hosts: The alternative host option allows you to schedule meetings and designate another licensed user on the same account to start the meeting or webinar if you are unable to.
