I need a virtual classroom door!

Hello Community!

 

I use Zoom to teach my math classes remotely.  During certain quiz and exam weeks, I want to remind my students that there is no Live lecture.  On campus, I just hang a note on the classroom door. I would like to be able to do that for my Zoom classes.  That is, I would like to be able to post a note to my Zoom "classroom door" without having to open the course and leaving it open for 2 hours so that my students can read the note. Is there currently such a feature?  I searched, but cannot find anything suitable.

 

I look forward to hearing your suggestions.

You can login to the web portal, custom edit the waiting room, and display a graphic or even a slide show as a short looped video. This will appear when the student joins the meeting even if the meeting is NOT in session.

Go to settings > in meeting basics > waiting room options > customize waiting room.

I looked at the waiting room possibility. But I can just write one message, correct?  Currently I use a waiting room  message specifically for my "office hour" meeting. But I also teach two different courses.  I didn't see the option of being able to have a separate waiting room for each meeting.  Am I mistaken?
