  • Selecting the icon will initiate the meeting.

Note: Any student selecting the Zoom icon and attempting to enter the Zoom meeting will receive the maximum grade. At this time there is no ability to give a partial grade for participation using the Zoom Activity. That will need to be done using a manual assignment.
