Usage

You can use Zoom as a video conferencing tool to use Quizizz on all devices. This allows teachers to seamlessly integrate Quizizz and Zoom into their virtual classrooms, without the hassles of multiple tabs and windows. 

Teachers will have the ability to use this feature in any instructor-paced activity, quiz, or Lesson:

  • Live Lesson: Start a Zoom meeting from your Quizizz Live Lesson
    • Start a “Live session” from the Lesson page.
    • From the host’s waiting screen, click  “Start video call” and then select “Zoom”.
    • A meeting is created and you will receive a meeting link. (You will be asked to log in to Zoom if it’s your first time)
    • Students will also get an invite on their screen to join the meeting.
    • Once they join, your students and you will be connected in your Zoom meeting.

Teachers can start a meeting at any point in the Live lesson, although most use cases will see teachers starting the meeting before the Quizizz Lesson begins.

  • Instructor-paced Quiz: Start a Zoom meeting from your Quizizz Instructor-paced quiz. 
    • Start a “Live session” from the Quiz page
    • From the host's waiting screen, click  'Start a video call' and select 'Zoom'
    • Sign in to start your meeting
    • Students will get an invite modal to join the meeting

Note: You cannot access Zoom via a Live quiz on Classic mode.
