Guidance for best practices in creating and scheduling Class meetings for your Blackboard class.
The best way to reduce issues when joining a Zoom meeting for a remote class is to schedule the Zoom meeting inside Blackboard. Faculty and students will be recognized as authorized PCCC participants when they connect to Zoom from inside their Blackboard course. As a bonus IT support will be better able to address technical issues, if they arise.
Login to Blackboard and go to your course.
Click on the “Join Live Webinar” item in the course menu on the left.
Click “Schedule a New Meeting”.
It’s recommended that you add the days and times that the class meets to the meeting title in the Topic. For example College Success 21Fall Tues & Thurs at 10:10am.
Check the “Recurring Meeting” option in the Time Zone section. And change Daily Recurrence to “No Fixed Time”. By choosing “No Fixed Time” only one meeting will appear for the entire semester. And the Zoom meeting room will be available for meetings with students in your class anytime you start the meeting.
Select other options as desired and “Save” the meeting.
