Any Live sessions you create through Learnyst will get updated in your Zoom panel.
However, sessions you create in Zoom will not reflect in Learnyst.
Now to start the live class, click the open LIVE class.
The Zoom panel will open up for the admin. As an admin, you will now be able to start your live classes through Zoom by clicking the launch meeting button.
Student Side Of Live Classes
Students can login to the course and join the LIVE class.
The live class will open up for the students in your own website and mobile app.
Note that students will not able to get the zoom link or zoom meeting id. Thus, students will not be able to share the meeting link with others.
Students will be able to use the chat, use the mic and also show their video.
Basically, they will be able to use all the zoom features from your academy.
So, this was an easy way to teach online using the Zoom integration feature.
