How to attend classes online using Zoom in Moodle

Zoom is a video conferencing and recording tool. Spelman Technology Services offers free Zoom accounts to all Spelman faculty, staff, and students. If your instructor is using Zoom, here’s what you need to do.

Test your setup beforehand

Try the Test Meeting to make sure your software and audio is set up.

Find the Zoom meeting link for your class

If the meeting was scheduled via Moodle, the Zoom meeting link is

  • In the Moodle course, under Zoom 
  • In Moodle Calendar, as an event
  • In a Moodle event notification (in your email if notifications are on)
  • In the Zoom app

Join a Zoom session

Click the Zoom meeting link several minutes before your meeting, as you may be prompted to download Zoom to to your PC, Mac, tablet or phone. Follow the instructions to join computer audio and mute yourself if that isn’t default. Unmute when you want to talk. In most cases, your instructor should be recording the session so you can watch it later, but if you can participate, you should try.

How can I get help?

Call (404) 270-5400 or visit but first check your internet connectivity. While you wait, call the phone number for your meeting, to hear its audio, but mute as needed. Most of your sessions should be recorded as well.

Find recordings of a Zoom meeting in Moodle

If the meeting was scheduled via Moodle and recorded, the Zoom recording will be in the Moodle course in the Zoom tool > Cloud Recordings tab a few hours after the meeting ends.
