  • Click Save
  • Repeat these steps in any additional courses that need access to the Zoom meeting.
  1. Alternate Sharing Options:

    • You can also email the Invite Link URL or invitation directly to students and guests.

This method is ideal for office hours, special guest speakers, or combined meetings, etc. To follow these steps, be sure you go to https://bridgew.zoom.us/ and log in with your BSU credentials before setting up your meeting.
