In the right sidebar menu that appears, click the plus sign to the left of Zoom.

To change its title, click the three dots to the right and choose Edit. Click the default title, erase it, and add your own title. Choose whether to keep your Zoom page hidden from students or visible to students from the dropdown menu. If you wish to add a description of the Zoom page, add that in the description text box. If you wish to allow class conversations associated with the Zoom page, check the Allow class conversations box. This topic is covered in more detail in another article. Click Save.
