There are three ways to schedule class meetings or office hours using a GauchoSpace course page. Here they are in order of preference. Use the method that best suits your workflow.
New for Fall 2020. The Zoom LTI Pro activity is an external tool used in GauchoSpace that allows users to schedule individual and recurring Zoom class meetings directly in GauchoSpace. With Zoom LTI Pro, recurring meetings automatically generate individual entries for the corresponding date and time. Users only need to add the Zoom LTI Pro activity to their course page once. All course meetings can be managed through the Zoom LTI Pro activity on GauchoSpace.
Note: Instructors will see all recurring meetings scheduled through the Zoom LTI Pro Interface. Students will only see the singular activity created on GauchoSpace.
This external tool was, until recently, the preferred method used to schedule and launch zoom meetings within GauchoSpace. It is still available as an activity in GauchoSpace. With the launch of Zoom LTI Pro we recommend using that software unless you are already familiar with this method.
This is a quick method with little to no integration with GauchoSpace. It is not recommended unless you are having a lot of trouble working with the LTI interface but have a strong familiarity with Zoom. Users create their meetings directly in Zoom and merely paste the Zoom-generated meeting link into their GauchoSpace calendar for their students to access.
Although we recognize all three of these methods It is preferred that you use the Zoom LTI Pro activity.
*Note- we do not recommend scheduling recurring course meetings via the Zoom Scheduling Extension in Google Calendar or Google Chrome*
