Moodle plugin of the month – Zoom
Let’s look at the Moodle plugin for the popular Zoom video-conference system…
Zoom is fast becoming the video-conference system of choice for our e-learning clients.
Previous Skype, Microsoft solutions, Wiziq, and other systems were often used, but many seem to be gravitating towards Zoom now – with one of the huge plus points being users do not actually need a Zoom account to join a meeting.
The Zoom Moodle plugin is available here: https://moodle.org/plugins/mod_zoom
This plugin offers tight integration with Moodle, supporting meeting creation, synchronisation, grading, and backup/restore.
Once installed, you can add a Zoom meeting in the same way that you add any other activity in Moodle 🙂
Most of the standard settings are supported such as setting the meeting description, times, duration, password, and the various audio and video options.
All in all, a great plugin for Moodle teachers using Zoom 🙂
