Use Integrations to Streamline Class Workflows

Canvas, Zoom, and Panopto (called "Class Recordings") are all integrated to

  1. Enable instructors to schedule Zoom meetings without using their personal Zoom accounts, and
  2. Automatically send Zoom recordings to the Canvas Class Recordings tool 

before Zoom recordings are auto-deleted by the university.

Instructors: Schedule Zoom class sessions via the Canvas Zoom tool & enable the Class Recordings tool

Why? To make your life easier! 

  • Zoom recordings are automatically transferred to Class Recordings in Canvas.
  • The instructor's personal Zoom account is no longer tied to the class session. (This is a good thing.)
  • It is quick and easy to add TAs and alternative hosts to the meeting.

Note: Zoom course recordings tied to personal instructor accounts will be automatically deleted after 120 days  (i.e. course Zoom meetings not created in Canvas sites). It will be the instructor's responsibility to download and manage recordings for students.
