Canvas How To Guide (instructional continuity module)

Zoom integration

You can use the integration to store and share all your Zoom videos with your students. For your convenience, Panopto has been integrated with our district's instance of Canvas LMS to help optimize your workflow.

If you schedule your Zoom meeting through Canvas, it will be automatically uploaded to Panopto. If you schedule your Zoom meeting outside of Canvas, you can designate a Zoom meeting ID to automatically hold all recordings made using that ID.

Instructions for designating a meeting ID (You do not need to do this if you are scheduling your videos from within Canvas).

Closed captions

When you create or upload videos to Panopto, its captioning engine will automatically caption your videos to make them accessible.
