Getting Started with BenchPrep’s Zoom Meetings Integration
Now that virtual training has become the new normal, we’re excited to announce the release of a stronger integration between BenchPrep and Zoom Meetings. This integration will allow you to quickly and easily create and manage virtual instructor-led training (VILT) sessions from within the BenchPrep platform.
If you already have virtual training sessions as part of your curriculum, this integration provides you with a great opportunity to add different types of events. If you haven’t yet considered running VILT sessions, the Zoom Meetings integration is a great way to explore this option. No matter what stage of digital transformation you’re in, the Zoom Meetings integration comes with a variety of benefits:
Virtual sessions are a flexible alternative to in-person learning sessions which are expensive, challenging, and not scalable given the current environment. With the Zoom Meetings integration, it’s now much easier to create and manage different events within BenchPrep, including:
- Giving all learners access to free virtual events such as webinars, lunch & learns, and networking events
- Providing a subset of learners access to virtual instructor-led training sessions
- Segmenting learner access to small group meetings or office hours
Virtual sessions offer more value to your learners and provide additional ways to facilitate communication and collaboration with peers, instructors, and subject matter experts from around the world in real-time.
While it may seem overwhelming at first to adjust to virtual sessions, we've tried to make it as seamless as possible to begin your transition. Try writing down all the different tools and tasks that you would need as an in-person facilitator. Then, think about how to repurpose those tools and tasks to the online environment.
Ease of Administration:
The integration’s streamlined administration tools enable you to monitor, report on, and manage your virtual sessions all from within the BenchPrep platform.
The BenchPrep Zoom Meetings integration is designed to make it as easy as possible to transition to a virtual-first training approach. Trying to manage events in multiple platforms can be very time-consuming -- this integration makes it simple to manage these workflows all from within BenchPrep Ascend.
How to Get Started:
The Zoom Meetings integration is completely self-serve from within Tenant Administration. In order to get started, you only need to ensure that you have admin credentials to your company’s Zoom Meetings account and that you have your User Portal enabled.
The first step is to integrate your Zoom account with the BenchPrep platform. We have detailed information on how to complete these steps in our help desk.
Once you have completed the integration, you’re ready to schedule meetings, register users, and run reports, all from within BenchPrep. You can find step-by-step instructions for all of these activities in the help desk links.
