Through the Zoom meeting element, you can organize live Zoom conferences in your course. As you took the earlier module in the account setting lesson, your Zoom account should be integrated with your Teachfloor account by now.

You can create an event on Zoom by staying in Teachfloor and managing multiple settings, such as Zoom sessions, which will automatically get recorded and uploaded to the Teachfloor platform.
