Using Panopto: Key Resources

Zoom integration

As a District-supported tool, Panopto is directly integrated with SMCCCD Canvas courses. 

You can use the integration to upload, caption, and easily share Zoom videos with students. This increases convenience and helps optimize faculty's workflow. 

Did You Know?

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).
