This article provides basic instruction on different ways of scheduling a Zoom meeting and inviting guests. If you have to establish a Zoom account, contact Educational Media Technologies
Schedule on the Web
You can schedule a meeting online by going to zoom.us. Click on Sign In to begin.
Login using your NMC email address and the password you created while creating your Zoom account.
Once logged in, click on Schedule a Meeting in the menu.
In the “Schedule a Meeting” area you can create a topic for the meeting and select the date and time. Review the other default meeting settings here and click on Schedule to continue.
Once the meeting is scheduled, you’ll be directed to the “Manage” page for the meeting you created. Here, click on Add to calendar to create an event on your Google Calendar where you can invite others, or click on Copy the invitation, which will allow you to copy meeting details to email to your guests. You can also click on the Edit button to modify meeting details. If you’re ready to start the meeting, click on the Start button.
Schedule using the Desktop App
If you’ve already created your Zoom account and downloaded the application, open it though the desktop shortcut or through your programs list.
In your Zoom dashboard, click on Schedule.
In the “Schedule a Meeting” area you can create a topic for the meeting and select the date and time. Select Google Calendar as your default calendar and review the other default meeting settings here. Click on Schedule to continue.
Because you selected Google Calendar as your default calendar, a Google Calendar event will open in your NMC Google Apps. The event contains details to help your guests attend the meeting. Type names/email address into the “Add guests” field and click on Save in order to invite guests and share meeting details.
