  4. Configure your meeting settings. Give your meeting a descriptive title. Choose the Date and Time that your meetings will begin. Choose Recurring Meeting and how often you want it repeated. Next, choose an End date. You can choose an end date, or number of occurrences. This will allow you to create one Zoom link that can be used throughout the semester.

Creating a Page in FREDLearn and Pasting a Zoom Invitation

  1. From your FREDLearn homepage, navigate to the course in which you need to add the page with the Zoom invitation. Open the course.
  2. Follow the Answers Documentation on Adding and Editing a Page in FREDLearn. A page in FREDLearn is created using the Create a File (Webpage) tool. Press the Upload/Create button to get started.Image Modified
  3. We recommend adding this page to your Course Information area of your course since students will be accessing the same Zoom link repeatedly throughout the duration of the course.
  4. Configure the settings of the page. We recommend giving the page a descriptive title that communicates to students that they need to open this page to get the join information and link for the Zoom meetings. 

  5. In the Page content field paste the Zoom invitation that you copied from the Fredonia Zoom Web Service site.  This invitation contains not only the Zoom link for students to click on to join the Zoom session, but also the Meeting ID and Password.  This is important because a student can use the Meeting ID and Password in the Zoom app as an alternate way to join the class session.
