There are a couple reasons why you may want to use the Zoom tool in your course.

  • You may want to set up a repeating weekly meeting session online for the whole duration of your course.
  • Holding office hours online for online, hybrid or face-to-face courses.
  • Setting up a one-time meeting session in your course, in case you won’t be able to physically make it to a class session.
  • Scheduling an online study session with your students before an important exam.

The CalStateLA Zoom tool makes these options possible. However, these options require technical steps. The Zoom Canvas/Moodle guides have instructions for creating these types of Zoom meetings.
