Getting Started with LTI Follow

Zoom can be configured as a standard LTI provider. Zoom supports LTI v1.1.1 and has been tested with MoodleCanvas, Desire2Learn and Blackboard.

Pre-requisite: 

  1. You must be on an Education, Business, API, or Enterprise plan. 
  2. Your Zoom admin will need to set up Zoom as an LTI tool provider within your LMS. Note: Be careful who you share the key/secret.

Common Use Cases for LTI:

1. A teacher schedules an activity for a course. The teacher adds the Zoom meeting ID to this activity. The teacher and all enrolled students can join the meeting via a single URL click that is displayed on the activity. 

2. A student hosts an activity for a homework. The student can start a Zoom meeting and invite anyone (classmates, TA, guests) to the meeting. 

Alternative to using LTI:

Zoom provides a Personal Meeting ID to all users. A Personal Meeting ID is like having an email or phone number that is unique to you. 

When you list a course to LMS, you would list:

  • Course name:  Math 101
  • Instructor: Dr. Benjamin Maddow  
  • Email: benjamin.maddow@school.edu
  • Time: Mon 1000am - 1100am 
  • Classroom: Buiding 10, Room 202
  • Maddow Virtual Room: https://zoom.us/j/2127778888
  • Phone: 212 777 8888

Note: Maddow Virtual Room is the Personal Meeting ID for Dr. Benjamin Maddow.
