8. Share the meeting information with your students by copying the meeting information and pasting it into an email or Canvas. Or you can add your students' email addresses to the meeting Guests section.

If you send your students the meeting information, you will need to admit each student into the session when it starts. The student will click "ask to join" and you will click "admit."

To avoid this, you will want to instead add their email addresses to the Guests section. This will allow the students to join the meeting without you having to admit them.
