    @Paul We got that bug report here

    We hope to address it in the next release, but we are busy with upgrading our Moodle 3.4 instance to 3.5. We plan on continuing to work on this sometime in summer or so.

    Hello there,
    Can I have different teachers with Zoom Pro accounts use Zoom in one unique Moodle instance? I'm assuming each teacher's email account in Moodle would need to match each of their Zoom account emails, but I'm not sure I found a way to configure the API Key / API Secret or Zoom home URL for each teacher, which may differ from Zoom Pro account to Zoom Pro account as teachers aren't part of one unique Business Zoom license, rather individual Zoom Pro users. Any feedback would be very welcome.

    Is this plugin available for moodle 3.1?

    @Axel The plugin requires a business or educational account. It will not work for individual LTI key/secrets.

    @Saeed We do not support versions older than 3.3 because of an API change that Moodle made that broke compatibility for versions older than 3.3.

    Hey Rex - Does the plugin handle Webinar reservations at all or is there any plan to? I'd also love to help documenting the plugin if possible

    @netme We have never seen that error... How did you try to update the token expiration time? Are you using the LTI key/secret for a educational/business account?

    @Alex We don't have plans to integrate Webinar reservations in the app. Our users that do that do the registration on Zoom's website. We can use any help in documentation. You can let either help us improve our README file or contribute to our wiki:

    @josue We have tested it with Moodle 3.7, so it should work. You are using the LTI key/secret mentioned here?
    You cannot use an individual key/secret pair. It needs to be an organizational account.

    Hi Rex --

    We're about to upgrade to Moodle 3.6, and I was testing the Zoom plugin on our dev server. All looked OK. But then I came back to the dashboard that now has the new Recently Accessed Items block. The image icon used for the Zoom instance is huge and blows out the block. You can see what I mean in the screenshot link below. We're thinking this might because the SVG for this icon is defined to be 100% (unlike the other icons seen in this example, such as Page and Forum).

    I'm sure we can go and fix this on our implementation (modify the SVG), but I thought you might want to see this. We're wondering if the Zoom svg icon in the plugin is following the Moodle icon guidelines.

    Thanks... Brian

    @brian Can you submit the resized icon to our github as a pull request? The icon was originally a pul request from LSU at

    Usually icon sizing is done in CSS, but I guess there is a bug with the dashboard.

    Sure... we'll submit one. The CSS for image icons in that block can also be changed (set height and width from "auto" to "24px").

    Hi, I'm using mod_zoom in 3.5 and when a user try to join the meeting the API respond "User {email} does not exist or does not belong to this account".
    I'm sure that older releases create the user automatically if it don't exists.
    Has the API version changed this behavior?

    Hi Rex,

    We are experiencing that after creating a Moodle event a Calendar event is created (good) but also that it dissapears after some time (bad!).

    Does anubody else have this issue? And if so, is there a solution known?

    Kind regards,,
