    Just wanted to send a message out to those who were turned off by the price of the Education plan...

    Within the past few months, Zoom has made a lot of changes to their pricing and made some features more accessible. The API needed for this plugin is now available to single user Pro accounts, for $14.99/mo per user. Even free accounts can get a temporary API key for testing here:

    When our institution first started using Zoom, we had to go through quite a few hoops to get the Education plan approved to start using it, but now everyone loves it. Hopefully this will make it easier for smaller institutions to use Zoom meetings or for individual teachers to justify using the plugin to their institution!

    Thanks to Rex for all the work you do maintaining this plugin!

    Hi Rex et al.
    Can you tell me if this plugin has been resubmitted to Moodlerooms for review after the V1.6 version went live. I am interested in this plugin, Moodlerooms has informed me that the plug failed code review for CSUN. Unless the code changes are re-reviewed there is no way that this plugin can be used by hosted Moodle customers.

    Angus, we did not know how the plugin got into Moodlerooms for review. Is it something that you can do as a customer to ask for a re-review? We are not a Moodlerooms school.

    Hi Rex
    Moodlerooms have reviewed code for thrid party vendors previously, there is a fee for code review. I am sure if you contact Blackboard they could guide you if you ask to have your plugin on the plugin matrix as a community plugin. The process can cost $thousands though.
    I dont think that you need to be a 'customer' to do this

    Hi Rex, We are using This Zoom Moodle plugin at the moment. We faced one issue with ongoing meetings (recurring meetings). Start meeting button does not work after sometime for the ongoing meetings. It asked user to login again to Zoom as when they click the join meeting button. Start meeting button has token to avoid login to Zoom. Seems like this token gets expired for these ongoing meetings as well. We are using ongoing meetings all the time (Meetings with no end date). What do we need to do to avoid this issue?

    Hi Rex, I looked at as you suggested but am unsure what I need to do there to apply a custom URL scheme like mycustomapp:// instead of https:// to launch meetings in mycustomapp that I'm building with the Zoom SDK rather than in the standard Zoom app. Could you advise? Thanks.

    Hi Rex, how does your plugin tell Zoom whom to register as the meeting host? Is there a way to specify that when creating a meeting? Thanks.

    gg sfdf, the meeting link should open into a web browser on the phone and then that launches the Zoom native app.

    Dasu Gunathunga, strange, we have not had reports of that bug before. We will look into it.

    Albert Leatherman,

    1) In that line of code you would do a string replacement to replace https:// to mycustomapp://

    2) We make the person who created the meeting in Moodle has the meeting host.

    Hi Rex, Thanks for your reply. Correct term for this is user 'Zpk'. We asked about this from Zoom and they said 'The ZPK is the authentication token used at the end of the start URL. This token is valid for user authentication for 2 hours, and after 2hrs the token will expire.'. Therefore we can't use start URL later.

    @Miguel, that is correct. You will need to have API access enabled for your account.
