Zoom Meeting licenses allow users to schedule multiple course sessions (referred to as a 'meeting') , all with discrete program days, start and end times.  The start and end times associated with a Zoom Meeting are given as a reference only.  Scheduled Zoom Meetings begin when the license Holder (host)  logs into the license, selects their scheduled meeting and presses start.  Only the Meeting Host may end the meeting.

Zoom Meeting "Business Model"

Since it is designed to support one individual per license, there can only be ONE active Zoom Meeting per license at a time. 

  • While one meeting is in progress, all other participants attempting to join another scheduled Zoom Meeting will be notified that 'the host has another meeting in progress'.   
  • Faculty members are encouraged to remain aware of the time remaining within their scheduled courses and END ON TIME so that followup course sessions (meetings) may start on time.  
  • Once the ongoing meeting is ended, the next scheduled meeting may be stated by the meeting host.  This allows all participants that have been unable to join the session to be placed into the new course session (meeting) and can begin equipment testing.

Asking remote participants to join early and test their computer connectivity prior to the start of class will help with this goal.  The Zoom Meeting 'self-help' testing location is an easy way for all participants to perform pre-program tests and can be accomplished 24/7.  http://zoom.us/test  Use of this link has no impact upon UNC Asheville Zoom Meeting licenses.
