Integration with online video communications platforms - beta release
Agylia is working on providing tighter integration with third-party video communications and webinar platforms. The initial focus is on Zoom, but this will be followed by Teams, with possibly others in the future, depending on customer demand.
The integration with Zoom is now available for customers already enrolled in the Agylia Zoom beta test program, and will subsequently be available as an option for all customers.
The functionality gives you the ability to automatically create Zoom meetings and webinars using the Agylia Learning Management System (LMS). The existing Event / Session functionality has been enhanced to allow you to specify that a session is being hosted on Zoom, which will automatically create the equivalent item in the Zoom platform, and add a link to join the Zoom meeting within the session details.
Since this is an enhancement to the existing Event / Session functionality, it will continue to support standard scenarios, such as:
- The ability to include a webinar in a learning pathway (curriculum).
- The ability to use enrolment as a gate check.
- The ability to use a seat capacity as a gate check.
Any updates to the session date and time in the LMS will result in corresponding updates to the meeting details in Zoom. The functionality also provides automatic retrieval of attendance records and storing of attendance history against a learning record, at the point the session has ended.
