Under Actions by clicking on the three dots of a specific meeting you will see more options:  

1. Launch

By clicking on Launch a new window will pop up. The meeting can start on the scheduled date and time when you click on the Enter the meeting. Any role in Brightspace higher than Student role will be able to launch or access the meeting this way even if the person is not the one scheduled the meeting.

Use this function to launch your meetings and enter the meeting space as moderator (rather than entering the meeting via the Content link to the meeting).

This option becomes available if you do not select to Invite entire class when setting up the meeting. When this option is available you can select from a list of course users (only users with the Student role of your Brightspace Classlist will appear) who you want to invite.  The meeting becomes available in the course Calendar only for the selected users. Note: If you do not see anyone click on Sync Roster to synchronise the Virtual Classroom with your Brightspace course page.
