Here at Etomon, we strive to give our instructors and students the greatest flexibility in deciding how they facilitate instruction using our platform. One big step we've taken to accomplish that goal, is to provide our users the option ofto link their Zoom account, and to use Zoom for instruction. in place of the Etomon Classroom.
We've gone to great lengths to make process for using Zoom with Etomon as simple and unobtrusive as possible. Below, I'll walk through the steps:
Linking your Zoom Account
First you will need to purchase a course, if you are a student, or have sold a class, if you are a teacher. Either way, you'll need to navigate to the classes page by clicking the "Classes" button on the navigation bar, or clicking this link.
Next, you'll need to click the "Join with Zoom" button underneath the "Join with Classroom" button.
You'll be asked to login to Zoom if you aren't logged in already, and to give Etomon access to your profile information, and the ability to create and join meetings.
That's it! Next, we will create a new Zoom meeting with the same details as specified in your lesson (date and time, name of the course, etc.).
Zoom should open, allowing you to start the class.
The meeting created on Zoom will have the same start and end times as the lesson on Etomon. The instructor will be made the "host" of the meeting, and the student will be a "guest." You may enter the room meeting at any time before the class is set to end.
