Each Instructor Needs to Connect Their Own Zoom Account

The admin’s account can not be shared by all the instructors due to various reasons like rescheduling the meeting or cancellation. So, to have better control over the meetings, each instructor must connect their own API details from their dashboard.

Create a Zoom Account
