Instructors can provide an opportunity for students to connect to ConferZoom from Canvas for group work. Students will be able to:
1. Turn on video
2. Use audio
3. Screen share
Note: Students cannot record locally unless the host joins the room and gives permission.
Change Account Settings
Account settings need to be updated in your ConferZoom account to allow students to join a session without the instructor. Be mindful that the settings will apply to all meetings scheduled from within Canvas or outside of Canvas; however, the settings can be updated as often as needed.
1. Sign-In to your ConferZoom account.
2. Navigate to 'My Meeting Settings' on the left of the page.
3. On the 'Meetings' tab, scroll down to enable 'Join before host'
Record the Sessions
The instructor can choose to have the student sessions automatically recorded for later review. Because the session is set to allow 'Join before host', when the room is entered a recording automatically starts. This could create multiple recordings if students are testing the link, or checking in to see if other students are in the session. The excess recordings can be deleted from your account.
On the 'My Meeting Settings' page select the 'Recording' tab.
5. Enable 'Cloud recording'.
6. Scroll down to enable 'Automatic recording'.
