You will be expected to set up ONE Zoom link that will be used for any students Zooming in. This link will be sent out via Emily (not yourself) once a student's positive Covid result has been confirmed by the Health Team. You will not be adding it to Google Classroom OR your Google Calendar events.
This Zoom link should also have three alternative hosts set up (alternate hosts can start the Zoom meeting in the case of your absence). It is different than making someone a "co-host" during a Zoom meeting.
Creating one recurring Zoom link through the Zoom dashboard (note - this may be different than what you were doing last year!) & adding alternative hosts to your Zoom meeting
Finding your Zoom Link & Meeting ID/Passcode again
Adding a calendar from Veracross to your own Google Calendar. Remember - Just importing your Veracross calendar does not allow other people to see when you're busy, so you will have to still add your own class schedule manually. To just add the A/B Week Calendar for middle, use this link (make sure to Click "Add" when the pop-up appears in Google Calendar).
Creating a recurring event (every two weeks) on Google Calendar
It might be helpful to save this information somewhere accessible (like in the Notes app on your Macbook), as you will be pasting this same Zoom meeting information in several different places - including (eventually) all of your Google Calendar class events.
To easily find your recurring Zoom link & Meeting ID/Passcode:
Sign into your Zoom account by going to "zoom.us" & signing in with Google using your BC email address
Click on "Meetings" on the left-hand menu
Find the meeting you set up (remember, this is your recurring meeting with no fixed time - the meeting title should include your name). Click on the Meeting title.
Click on "Copy Invitation" to find the Zoom link & Meeting ID/Passcode. Copy & paste this information wherever it needs to go!
These steps show you how to add a Calendar from Veracross (including a Calendar of your classes) to your BC Google Calendar. Remember - Just importing your Veracross calendar does not allow other people to see when you're busy, so you will have to still add your own class schedule manually.
To just add the A/B Week Calendar for middle, use this link (make sure to Click "Add" when the pop-up appears in Google Calendar).
