Online Tab

The Online tab is a "hub" location for the online resources used in your course, such as your Zoom lectures. In addition to facilitating your setup for these products, students will be able to refer to this page to access current and prior videos as well as other future resources.

On initial view of this tab you have options to turn on sub-pages as well as an option to turn the page off to student view. At any point in the future, you can revisit this setup page in the left-hand navigation to turn on or off future integrations.

    [Note that you will need to log into at least once before enabling this feature so that you are provisioned into the BYU enterprise account.]

    • Students are automatically added as attendees (even if they add the class later)
    • Passwords are automatically passed behind the scenes and don't need to be distributed

    Other Features:

    • Click All my Zoom Meetings/Recordings to view all of your Zoom meetings (not just the ones scheduled for this specific course)
    • Upcoming meetings will show for the class on the Upcoming Meetings tab. Just click the “Start” button when it’s time for class!
    • Previous Meetings shows all previous meetings for this class. (It will just show the information about the meeting to students, but instructors will be able to link to the Zoom file and see a Report of who attended the meeting.)
    • Personal Meeting Room gives you access to your Personal Meeting Room options.
    • Cloud Recordings – if you choose to publish past meetings, students can review a prior recorded class meeting. The publish ability is a toggle, so you can permit students to view the lecture for a few days and then toggle it off when you don't want them to have access.
    • The kebab menu allows you to import meetings/recordings that you’ve already set up but didn’t do it via Learning Suite. Just type in the Meeting ID and it is now part of this class and will show in the list of viewable meetings. You can also use this menu to disassociate a meeting from the course. Disassociating a meeting unlinks the Zoom meeting from the course.

    If you visit, these class meetings will also show up on your Zoom list there and you can also make edits to the meetings via that site.

    At this point in time, if you want to create pre-assigned breakout rooms for a meeting, you can set up the meeting in Learning Suite first, then go to to edit the meeting and create the pre-assigned breakout groups. If you plan on using breakout rooms that are not pre-assigned, you don't need to do anything further during setup.
