How to integrate my TalentLMS domain with Zoom

Zoom.us is a web conferencing platform, offering a cloud solution for (among others) audio, video and screen sharing conferences, all available for Windows, Mac, iOS & Android.
This post is a step-by-step guide on how to integrate your Zoom account with your TalentLMS domain. It is assumed that you already have a Zoom account; if not visit https://zoom.us/ and create one.

Domain administrator


The first step in order to use Zoom for your conferences, is – logged in as administrator – go to Account&Settings > Conferences section (1) and from the Type dropdown list select Zoom.us (2).


Instructors


Once Zoom is selected as the preferred conference mode, each instructor should connect their Zoom account with TalentLMS before starting creating conferences.

The process to connect your Zoom account with your TalentLMS account is the following:

- Go to https://zoom.us/developer/api/credential (sign in if needed). Unless API integration is already enabled for your Zoom account, click the “Enable API integration” button.
 There you will find the “API Key” and “API Secret” which you will need in the next steps.



- Enter your TalentLMS domain as Instructor, and access the conferences index page. Click the “Connect with Zoom” button (1).



- In the model shown, fill in the “API Key” and “API Secret” (1) acquired by the previous process. Click “Submit” (2).



Next, a select box will appear, prompting to choose a user associated with your Zoom account (to manage your Zoom account users, visit the “User Management” section inside your Zoom account, at https://zoom.us/account/). 

 

Click the “Ok” button, and you are ready to create your first Zoom conference!

Once you’ve followed all the above steps you will also be able to create ILT units. Please use this guide for instructions on how to create ILT units.
