Note: When instructors log into Zoom via Blackboard, they see any meetings they have scheduled in Zoom, regardless of their association with the course. Use descriptive meeting titles to organize your meetings to sort between classes/sections.

This will not be an issue for some instructors but may impact those who use Zoom for other functions or teach more than one section with Zoom.

When students log into Zoom via Blackboard, they see only the meetings scheduled for that course, regardless of instructor.
