Note: Zoom is now integrated with Learnyst. So, you can run Zoom LIVE classes in Learnyst without buying a Zoom License.
On Learnyst, you can conduct LIVE meetings or Webinars.
In this article, let's see how to conduct Webinars from your admin dashboard. Here are the steps:
Step 1: Activate the Learnyst Live Class Add-On
First, click on the Addons within your admin dashboard, and select the LIVE class add-on
Click on Subscribe and activate your LIVE class for free.
Note: Currently, you can purchase or activate add-ons only if you are in any of our paid plans.
If you are in the free plan and want to activate the Learnyst LIVE add-on please email firstname.lastname@example.org or chat with the sales team.
Step 2: Create and Publish a Live Lesson
Within the contents section, select courses and click the Create Course button and create a course
Now, within the Course builder, create a section and select the LIVE class lesson
Here, you can select either Meeting, Webinars, or Embed other LIVE class apps
Learnyst Meeting: Ideal for hosting more interactive sessions where you’ll want student participation or break your session into smaller groups.
Learnyst Webinars: Ideal for large student groups. Typically, webinar attendees do not interact with one another.
Embed Live class: By default, Zoom is integrated into Learnyst. But you can also embed other favorite live class platforms in your academy.
Give a proper lesson name, start time, and duration, and click on Save.
Next, go back to your course builder and click on the Publish status button to make your course LIVE.
Step 3: Start Your Webinar
Go to the LIVE lesson you created, & click on Open Live Class to start the live class
This launches the Zoom app. You can click on the Open Zoom.us option or click on the Launch Meeting button.
This is what the Learnyst meeting will look like from the admin side.
Learnyst Webinar - Learner Side
Now, that you have published your courses and started your live meeting, let's see how Learners can join your class.
Learners can go to your academy-URL/learn and log in with their email id and password.
From the learner dashboard, they can see the upcoming live classes
Next, they can click on the live class and join the live class from the lesson builder
The learner can attend the webinar, answer Q&A, ask questions via chat, and avail of all the Zoom Webinar features. This is how the student side will look.

Only enrolled students can access your LIVE class. Your Zoom LIVE Class link will be secured and can't be shared with students who haven't enrolled in your course.
