What does the Zoom Video integration do?
Zoom is the leader in modern enterprise video communications, with a secure, easy platform for video and audio conferencing, messaging, and webinars across mobile, desktop, and room systems. Zoom Rooms is the original software-based conference room solution used around the world in conference, huddle, and training rooms, as well as executive offices and classrooms.
With Litmos' Zoom integration, training administrators can create instructor led training modules that are hosted via Zoom video conference.
With Zoom instructor led training's in Litmos, you will be able to:
- Automatically create Zoom sessions that are tied to Litmos ILT sessions and provide Learners with links into those web conferences.
- Launch Zoom as an Instructor or as a Learner directly from within Litmos.
- Generate a Zoom participation report for roll call and time spent for each learner to Litmos with a click of one button.
When creating an ILT session, select the "zoom training" type to create the Zoom session and ensure all participants receive web conference links in Litmos and via email once registered.
Activate the Zoom Integration:
- Navigate to the Account tab.
- From the Integrations sub tab, click the Zoom icon.
- Check the "Enable Zoom" box and click "Save Changes".
Note: You will need a paid Zoom account before you set up the link with Litmos.

- Navigate to the "My Profile & Settings" link located in the top right of the screen.
