covid-19 During the crisis, CampusGroups is offering a FREE Campus Community App to help campuses keep their students connected and engaged.
You are now able to create your event online. When deciding "Where" your event will take place, you can check the new "Video Conferencing" option. Select the meeting app you will use (Zoom, Webex, Blue Jeans, GoToMeeting, etc.) and create your event's link to share with attendees. You can also choose who will be able to see this link to manage your event's privacy.
Your event attendees need to download the mobile app prior to the event. We advise you to send them an email to explain why they need to download the mobile app before your class/event.
Go to your upcoming events listing, select the one you are going to present and click on the QR code on the right side of your screen to open it.
Copy and paste it on the first slide of your presentation to allow students/attendees to scan it at the beginning of your virtual event.
Attendees will use the scan fonction of their mobile app to scan the QR code on the screen, and just like that, they are checked in!
You might also want to track that students attended your event or class until the end. In this case, go to Attendance Tracking Options settings, and “Activate Self Check-Out”. Select "Yes".
The same way they opened and scanned the QR code to check-in, students will be able to check-out at the end of your event.
