Getting Started with Zoom in myElearning

Event Date(s): 03/03/2022

 The UWI has adopted Zoom as its new enterprise web-conferencing tool for teaching and learning, replacing Blackboard Collaborate Ultra. To accommodate the transition, Centre for Excellence in Teaching & Learning (CETL) has designed this virtual workshop to expose faculty with immediate requirements for getting started with the Zoom application and integrating it into their myeLearning courses. 

What is Zoom?

Zoom is a web conferencing tool that includes a white board, annotation tools, chat, and the ability to share slides or other applications running on your computer. Additionally, teaching sessions can be recorded and shared across the myeLearning environment. With Zoom, faculty will be able to conduct online teaching presentations, one-on-one meetings, group chats and many more. The integration will make it easy for faculty to schedule, share and start their online teaching sessions in their myeLearning courses. 

 This workshop will cover: 

  • · the steps involved in activating your Zoom account, 
  • · an overview of Zoom’s interface and 
  • · adding the Zoom activity in myeLearning. 

Upon completion of this workshop, you will be able to: 

  • · Activate your Zoom account. 
  • · Set a Zoom profile picture. 
  • · Change the Time Zone in Zoom’s web portal.
