This article will discuss how to setup a Zoom meeting and best practices.
As a Vanderbilt Faculty/Staff/Student you have access to host Zoom Meetings. If you have not already done so, please visit https://vanderbilt.zoom.us/ to setup your Zoom account.
After signing into your Vanderbilt Zoom account with your VUNetID and password you can download the
Outlook Add-in that will allow you to schedule Zoom meetings directly from Outlook.
Once you have downloaded the Outlook Add-In you will have an option to
Schedule a Meeting directly from Outlook.
When scheduling your Zoom Meeting be sure to require a password.
If you click on
Advanced Options you will notice you have several options for your meeting. We recommend that you have a
Waiting Room so you will know all of your participants. If you have a large meeting, it is recommended to have
Alternative Hosts that can help you moderate your meetings.
