When you schedule a Zoom meeting using the integrated Zoom tool in your Canvas course, your meeting will be available for all users on that course to join. But what if you want to share this across separate Canvas courses?
This can be done by copying the meeting invitation and sharing it in an announcement or a page in another Canvas course.
Do not share meeting information/invitation on publicly accessible web pages.
The steps are as follows.
- Create your meeting in the Zoom section of your first course.
- Once you have created your meeting, copy the invitation (which includes the meeting url and the passcode).
- In another Canvas course, create an Announcement and paste in the invitation text. Add further information to explain what you are sharing. Click save to send the announcement containing the link to students on the course. Alternatively, you can add this information to a Canvas page.
Sharing Canvas Announcements using Direct Share
If you need to share announcements over multiple courses, the Direct Share feature in Canvas can help to speed things up. As an instructor, you can use Direct Share to copy individual announcements in one course directly into another course in which you are enrolled.
Once you have created your announcement, you will be able copy this into multiple courses. Once this is copied to your other courses this will be published to students. Guidance on using Direct Share can be found here.
