Additional Options for Using Panopto

UT Zoom to Panopto Integration

You can request that any Zoom meetings you schedule through Canvas be added automatically to your Canvas Panopto Video folder.

This can save you a step if you are going to upload Zoom recordings to Panopto anyway. This will also free up recording space on your Zoom account since the Zoom recording will be deleted after it has uploaded to Panopto.

Working Directly in Panopto

You can stay in Canvas for most functions, or you can click the the box with the arrow in the upper right corner to leave Canvas and work directly in Panopto. This will provide more room to view your folders and more options to filter or sort your list.
