Setting up a Zoom Meeting in more than one ReggieNet Course

You will be unable to setup one meeting for multiple ReggieNet courses due to the way Zoom works in ReggieNet.

The recommended action is to schedule a New Meeting through the Zoom website at IllinoisState.Zoom.Us or through the Zoom Application.

Once the meeting is set up using one of the above methods, you can then share the Meeting ID through the Announcements section in ReggieNet.
