Inviting a Guest Speaker to a Video Conference

These directions are for faculty.  They work whether you're creating a new video conference in Canvas or editing a pre-existing meeting on the video conference tab of a Canvas Site. 

Keep in mind that only the meeting owner can edit a meeting.

Inviting a Guest to a Video Conference Scheduled within Canvas

It is easy to share your video conference information with a guest speaker right from Canvas, whether you're using Zoom or BlueJeans.

Zoom

If you've scheduled your Zoom meeting within Canvas it is very easy to get an invitation link to share with a guest:

BlueJeans

If your BlueJeans meeting was scheduled using Canvas, you have two options: 

  • Sharing a link to the video conference.
  • Adding the guest speaker to the meeting. 

We recommend sharing a link via email, but either method will work.
