The following link contains information from Zoom.us about their video conferencing platform: 

Zoom can be used in conjunction with Blackboard by one of two methods. 

  1. Faculty can take their Zoom meeting invitation link and past it into a Web Link or Announcement or other Blackboard content. You can learn how to get the invitation link at the following link: https://support.zoom.us/hc/en-us/articles/201362773-Where-can-I-find-the-meeting-invitation-text-
  2. Alternately faculty can use the blackboard integration tool to connect their course to their Zoom account. Students will see a simplified view when they open the Zoom tool. They will not be able to use it to access cloud recordings. To add Zoom to your course this way, create a Tool Link on the menu and make it available to students. If you are not familiar with how to make a Tool Link refer to Article 618: Create a Tool Link
Note: The Blackboard integration only works with Zoom accounts that have been licensed to Eastern as approved by the Provost. Free or personally owned accounts won't work with the integration (they can still use method 1).
