Handout: Zoom Instructions for Remote Guest Speakers

Table of contents

If you have guests without a sponsored SUNet ID who will join your Zoom session, you’ll need to provide them a direct Zoom link since they will not be able to log in through Canvas. 

After scheduling your live Zoom session in Canvas, get the direct link by following these steps:

  1. In your Canvas course, click the Zoom menu.
  2. Go to Upcoming Meetings and choose the meeting that your guest will join.
  3. Use the link to Invite Attendees (or click “Copy the Invitation” to copy full invitation details including options for dialing in by phone).
  4. Provide the link or copied invitation details to your guest(s) by email or within a calendar invitation.

You can provide the handout below to your guest speakers to help them connect to Zoom and get oriented to using Zoom at GSB. The handout covers: Zoom installation and login, finding and joining class sessions in Zoom, Zoom features commonly used in GSB courses, and troubleshooting tips.
