    Hi Rex.... We started using the Zoom plugin on our Moodle 3.4 site a couple weeks ago. Thanks to you and UCLA for developing and maintaining this. A question did come up from our support group about the "START MEETING" button. They noticed that clicking on the button takes you to Zoom in the same window, so you lose your place in Moodle. Having Zoom open in a new window would be preferable (perhaps this could be a configurable admin option). Maybe this is something that has been suggested before, and there's a reason it works the way it does now. But I thought I'd go ahead and ask about it.

    Thanks very much... Brian Warling / UCSF

    HI Rex. Thank you for maintaining this plugin. Would there be any configuration that allows the plugin only to launch a Zoom meeting if you logged in to your Moodle site, rather than the user trying to go directly to the Zoom webpage?

    Hi I keep this message: You are using Zoom for the first time, so you must enable your Zoom account by logging in to with your login credentials..." I am using the same email in both the moodle and zoom instance. Is there something I am missing?

    Hi Rex,

    I was just wondering about the Zoom API version. When will the version be released that uses the 2.0 API? The Zoom API v1.0 will no longer be supported.

    From their website ( Version 2 of the Zoom API was released on November 4th, 2017. Version 1 of the Zoom API is being sunset and will no longer be supported after November 1st, 2018. It is recommended that you start developing with Version 2 of the Zoom API.

    Hello~ I have a question.
    I couldn't install this.
    'Mod_Zoom' displayed and stop. and then I can't access admin setting. Except this(admin setting), I think all function is all right.

    Sorry, I missed this error.
    'Fatal error: Cannot declare class Firebase\JWT\JWT, because the name is already in use in /var/www/html/moodle/mod/zoom/jwt/JWT.php on line 22'

    @Polaris it seems that you have another plugin that uses the Firebase\JWT library. If you can, can you email me all the plugins on your system? You can copy and paste the table at Site administration > Plugins > Plugins overview. Just select the "Additional plugins" list.

    I want to see if we can reproduce this error and create a workaround. You can email it to rex AT

    @Polaris In the meanwhile as a workaround you can try commenting this line in the file classes/webservice.php


    And change it to

    I am getting this error when trying to create a "Zoom meeting" in Moodle.

    I've double checked the setting and still, nothing is jumping out at me.

    @Will, what error are you getting? What is the message? Is the user's email the same email that is on their Zoom account?
