Zoom - Import Meeting Created in Web Portal into Blackboard

Below will show you how to import a Zoom meeting into Blackboard.

If a Zoom meeting was first scheduled using the NDSU Zoom Web Portal it can be imported into the Blackboard course. This may happen if Breakout Rooms are created for the meeting. The Blackboard Zoom integration does not have the feature to add Breakout Rooms to the meeting. When Breakout Rooms are created in the Web Portal and imported into Blackboard, the Breakout Rooms will work when the meeting starts.

  1. Once the meeting has been scheduled in the NDSU Zoom Web Portal, write down or copy the Meeting ID. Example: 598-378-1742.   
  2. Log into Blackboard go to the course for the Zoom meeting.
  3. Click on the Zoom link in your course. You will see the Zoom LTI integration window listing Upcoming, Previous, Personal Meetings and Cloud Recording tabs.
  4. Above the tabs, on the top right click on the Three Dots and select Import Meeting.
