For better organization of the learning process the system allows you to organize webinars. They are arranged based on GoToMeeting platform, which allows up to 100 attenders with screen sharing, video and audio conferencing.
JoomlaLMS and GoToMeeting integration allows webinars scheduling within LMS and user access directly from the course page. Scheduling date, time and attendance emails are sent to GoToMeeting to create a class session. Then, the session data is forwarded back and is depicted in your course catalog so students can see it and register for it. GoToMeeting platform is mobile compatible what means more students can attend your conference while they are on the go.
To be able to use this tool, user should configure the JoomlaLMS-GoToMeeting integration first.
Please follow the steps below to configure the JoomlaLMS-GoToMeeting integration:
|1.||Register a free trial or paid account at GoToMeeting Website and specify the number of organizers upon the registration.|
Note: An organizer is a teacher account which allows a teacher to organize and schedule webinars in JoomlaLMS courses. If you need to organize several webinars at the same time (even in different JoomlaLMS courses) then it is necessary to register several organizers. If you only have one organizer then this teacher won't be able to schedule several webinars at the same time even in different courses and an error message will be displayed.
|3.||Log in and go to My Apps:|
|4.||Click Add a new App to create a new application for your GoToMeeting. Select Product API according to the version of GoToMeeting you are using. In the 'Applicaton URL' field please specify the domain name of the site where your JoomlaLMS is installed e.g. http://demo.joomlalms.com/.|
