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

  2. Select the green Create button and choose Upload Media. You can select one or multiple recordings from your computer to upload (see Fig. 2).

  3. Once the videos are uploaded and processed, the recording title will turn blue (see Fig. 3). Then the video can be embedded in a Canvas module page.
