Online Classes with Zoom Integration

Zoom is an online meeting and video conferencing platform that is widely used by educational organizations and schools around the world.

Demiks is integrated with this platform to facilitate online class management for the school's administration team.

Configure Zoom to Integrate with Demiks

The first step is to configure your Zoom account. You will need to allow Demiks to connect to your Zoom account to

  • get access to the list of your users
  • manage meetings on your behalf

These permissions are required in order to allow you to pick a user from your list of users and create a meeting under that username for your class. Follow these steps to give Demiks the required permissions:

  1. Go to the settings page by clicking on Settings>Integrations on the top menu;
  2. In the left panel in the integrations page, click on the tab called “Zoom”;
  3. Click on the “Connect with Zoom” button;
  4. Follow the instructions on Zoom platform;
  5. Once you’re back to your Demiks Admin dashboard, you're all done!

Now that your Demiks Admin and Zoom accounts are connected you can create Zoom meetings for your classes right in your Demiks Admin software.

Create Zoom Meetings

To create a Zoom meeting for a new or existing class you can follow these steps:

  1. Create a new class, or open an existing class;
  2. Change the class to an online class by switching on the “This class is online” button;
  3. Now you have the option of creating a Zoom class by clicking on the camera icon;
  4. In the dialog you can pick one of your Zoom users, type in a name;
  5. Click save;
  6. The connection instructions will be automatically displayed for both the teacher and the students in the class on their dashboard.

Delete a Zoom Meeting

Once the class is over, it’s better to delete the meeting associated with the class from Zoom to keep things clean. Demiks Admin software does this for you automatically.

If you delete or archive a class, the Zoom meeting created for that class will be automatically removed too.

If your class is not online anymore, switch the “This class is online” button to off on your class management page and the Zoom meeting created for this class will be automatically deleted.

Follow these steps if, for whatever reason, you need to change the link and credentials for a Zoom meeting

  1. Open your class details in Demiks Admin;
  2. Click on the remove button (camera icon with a crossed line) next to the “This class is online” key;
  3. Click on the camera icon to open the Zoom meeting creation dialog;
  4. In the dialog you can pick one of your Zoom users, type in a name;
  5. Click save;
  6. The new connection instructions will be automatically displayed for both the teacher and the students in this class on their dashboard.

Uninstall Zoom (Disconnect Demiks Admin from Your Zoom Account)

In case you don’t want to use Zoom or Demiks Admin anymore, you can disconnect Demiks Admin from your Zoom account. This way Demiks won’t have access to fetch your user list, nor to create or fetch a meeting. Follow these steps to uninstall Zoom:

  1. Login to your Zoom account and navigate to the Zoom App Marketplace;
  2. Click Manage > Installed Apps or search for the Demiks Admin app;
  3. Click on the Demiks Admin app;
  4. Click on the uninstall button.
