Zoom Video Conference Application


Important Zoom Updates: Effective September 27, 2020, Zoom will begin requiring you to use the Zoom waiting room or passcode to enter a Zoom meeting!  You may set up your meetings with a passcode or waiting room or change your default Zoom settings. 

If you enable a passcode, there is an option in your Zoom settings, that you may turn on, to embed the passcode in the link.  This will eliminate the need to manually enter the passcode. If you enable the waiting room, you will allow participants to join the meeting using your Zoom controls. If you have not enabled either option by September 27, Zoom will enable the waiting room in your account. 

If you enable the passcode option and you previously sent your class Zoom invite link to your students, you will need to resend the new link. If you enable the waiting room and previously sent your class Zoom invite link, you will not have to resend the Zoom invite link. 

If you intend to speak with students individually after your course Zoom meeting, it is recommended that you set up a waiting room for your Zoom meeting.  Then you can place the students in the waiting room and speak to them individually.  Additional Zoom waiting room documentation is on the Zoom Waiting Room web page.

  • 'Zoombombing' Attacks Disrupt Classes
    • This article provides information concerning 'Zoombombing.' Zoombombing is when someone obtains access to your Moodle meeting link when they are not invited to participate in your meeting. This person may post inappropriate material in your Zoom meeting.  One technique to avoid this is to put your Zoom meeting link on your Moodle course page and keep it hidden until the day of your Zoom meeting.
