Uploading Zoom recordings into Panopto

Zoom recordings downloaded onto your computer can be uploaded into Panopto within your Canvas course. Since Panopto is a media management system, uploading through Panopto does not increase your Canvas quota size and provides the best viewing experience for students. To get started, please enable Panopto in your Canvas site. 

Once Panopto is enabled on your Canvas site, you are ready to upload Zoom recordings. Then, if desired, you can embed the Panopto recordings in Canvas.

  1. Select the Panopto Video link to create the Panopto course folder (See Fig. 1).
