I am new to this forum and hence seeking your support.
I tried so many places but somehow not getting answers on integrating Zoom for my all teachers.
I followed below steps:
1. Went to Zoom and created APP through JWT and noted the API Key and API Secret
2. Went to Moodle and provided the information in Zoom settings and scheduling of meeting was successful
Now, I have other teachers as well. So, I asked them to create APP in their account in Zoom and share the API Key and API Secret. How, can I add this information in another Zoom setting? I can see that the settings in Moodle is only one which I have already added in step 2.
Does that mean only one user can use Zoom in Moodle.
Can you please elaborate the steps.
now other teachers will be logging in using their own accounts (must be pro accounts) to use on moodle.
your work to integrate zoom with moodle is finished.
| all other teachers need to have Pro accounts with Zoom to connect through Moodle?
No. Only you as an administrator you need to have an educational or pro-account. Then you have to set up the LTI plug-in on the Zoom website.
After that it is better to add all your teachers in the admin window on Zoom.us because if you do not do this, when a teacher would like to create a Zoom session from a Moodle course for the first time they will receive an error message asking them to be registered with your organisation. When you add an existing Zoom email user’s address, this user will receive a message inviting him/her to transfer the account under your institution (no data is lost or whatever it is just a shift without consequences).
When you add/invite a user under your institution on Zoom, you can choose the status : pro or basic. For using Zoom via Moodle and the LTI plug-in basic accounts work perfectly well.
In my own institution, we had three pro accounts (our licence allowed up to 10) and more than 100 basic users, all using Zoom from their Moodle course.
Hope this help
I have done as you suggested and it works great. However I have some questions as to sustainability of this set up. So here is how it works now
1. Admin has 1 paid account of 100 users
2. Courses are set up with different people as Teachers, who have basic zoom accounts
3. They can create zoom calls within their courses and interact with the participants.
4. These calls could overlap in time
Generally, outside of Moodle, zoom will require that you have multiple paid licences to run multiple meetings at the same time. Is it correct then that when you come through Moodle you only need 1 paid account for the organisation?
As the Moodle admin, I am trying to set this up and don't want to publish the wrong information as it will be chaotic if everyone tries to set up meetings in their courses and the times overlap.
I am thinking it cant be working through moodle that you only need 1 paid licence? Is there a limitation on duration of meeting or the number of participants? Something has to be there? Seems too good to be true ! Please help
