Sign into Zoom Manager via Link Blue

If you plan on hosting your own classes, you must setup a Link Blue account and download Zoom to your device. (the Zoom software itself is free and can be downloaded to your device here)

Once you have set up the Link Blue account, go to the University of Kentucky's Zoom website, to sign into the Zoom Manager for creating, managing, and starting your Zoom meetings. Logging in from Zoom's website will not work.

You can also open the Zoom application directly on your computer, then select "Sign In", then under "or sign in with", select the first option to the left, "SSO". You will then be asked to sign in with your Link Blue credentials.

*requires Link Blue username. Please contact OLLI Office if you do not remember your Link Blue username.
