Zoom.us is a web conferencing service, providing cloud-based audio, video, and screen-sharing solutions for Windows, iOS & Android systems. TalentLMS lets you integrate your portal with Zoom Meetings or Zoom Webinar, to make the most of its advanced video conferencing capabilities. In TalentLMS, you can use Zoom for Conferences and Instructor-Led Training (ILT) units.
To integrate your portal with Zoom:
Step 1: Select a default videoconferencing platform (as Administrator)
First, set Zoom.us as your preferred conference medium.
1. Sign in to your TalentLMS account as Administrator and go to Home > Account & Settings.
2. In the Conferences section, use the Type (1) drop-down list to choose Zoom Meeting or Zoom Webinar (2).
After selecting Zoom Meeting or Webinar from the dropdown, you will see an option for Maximum capacity (3). Here you can set a limit for the number of users permitted to join the webinar. If left as 0, the default capacity of Zoom.us will be applied (100).
Step 2: Connect your Zoom account to TalentLMS (as Instructor)
Instructors responsible for creating live training events must connect their Zoom account to TalentLMS.
1. Sign in to TalentLMS and switch to the Instructor role. From the right-hand panel, go to Conferences. Click the drop-down option and select Connect with Zoom.us (1).
2. You will now be redirected to Zoom. You will need to log in to your Zoom account - if not already logged in. To complete the connection and associate your TalentLMS account with your Zoom account click Authorize (2).
|Note: Each Instructor that wants to create an online session with Zoom has to connect his account with TalentLMS as described above.|
|Note: To comply with Zoom’s security initiative, we’ve added a password feature. When creating an instructor-led unit, this is optional and you can choose if your webinar will require a password for users to join. To set up a password for the webinar tick Generate password.|
You're now ready to create your first Zoom-enabled videoconference.
How to add a password to Conferences
When an instructor creates a conference they can enter the desired password (1) in the dedicated field or leave this empty to have no password for the conference.
How to add a password to Instructor-led training sessions
For instructor-led training sessions, you can choose whether you want to generate a random password (1) when the instructor creates the webinar or leave this option unchecked for no password.
If there is a password, learners can view (2) and use the password right before joining the session.
