Setting Up Webinar Integrations with Zoom, GoToWebinar, GoToTraining or Microsoft Teams

If you offer live video webinars as a part of your Self Paced course material, you can set up a webinar module so that students can launch the webinar from right within their course! We also have the option to have virtual classes as a part of our Instructor Led courses. Before you create your webinar modules or add virtual classes, you'll first need to ensure that you're set up with the necessary integration, which is what we will review in this guide. 

You can set up webinar modules using Vimeo Live Trainings without an integration, though if you want to use Zoom, GoToWebinar, GoToTraining or Microsoft teams, read on to learn how to get the correct integration set up. Once the integration is established, you'll be able to create webinar modules, and from there, add the module to your course so students may access it. 

For virtual Instructor Led courses, you can integrate with Zoom, GoToWebinar and GoToTraining. 

Let's dig into each integration option in this article--simply click below to jump to the integration that you want to add. 

Note that Instructor Led courses mentioned above may not be available to legacy users. Please contact support if you have questions about the availability of this feature and adding it to your platform!
