Learning or delivering learning online doesn't mean that you can no longer make a personal connection with your learners. Many people choose a blended approach, utilizing technology to connect. Adding an online meeting space to your course is one way of doing this. You can do this by either embedding an LTI (for example if your organisation has added a Zoom integration) or by embedding a web link.

How to embed an online meeting via LTI:

  1. Select the course you want to add the meeting to.

  2. At the bottom of the course navigation menu you will find an + Add to this course button.

  3. Click on the + Add to this course.

  4. Select LTI application.

5. This will open the box shown below.

  • Enter in a Title - this will be added as the new tab on your course menu

  • If your account owner has connected the LTI tool e.g your organisation's Zoom account in the account setting area this will appear in the LTI Provider dropdown box. Once an LTI Provider is selected this will auto-populate the Consumer key and Consumer secret.

  • Enter in your Launch URL - this is the link for your online meeting space. There are various tools you can use. We use Zoom in our example. (Note the URL must start with https://)

  • Toggle the Display method to either choose your web meeting to Launch in a new window or Embed within your course

  • Enter some text to let you learners know more about your web meeting in the Add a note for you learners field

  • Click Save

You will now see your new tab on the course menu in place of the + Add to the course icon. Depending on whether you have chosen Embed or Launch you will either see the Go to App button or the web meeting tool embedded in your page.
