Asynchronous Zoom Recordings (Instructors)

You can create a Zoom Recording outside of class or as part of your course materials and make them available to students to watch on their personal computer or mobile device. Asynchronous recordings promote self-study where students can play back and interact with recorded content.

It is recommended that you create asynchronous Zoom Recordings from the Zoom Web Portal to avoid students being notified about the Zoom Meeting or finding the session and trying to join from your Canvas course.

Note: You can also use Panopto to record asynchronous content to share with your students. Review Create and View Panopto Recordings in Canvas.

  3. Click the Open in Panopto icon

  1. From the Panopto Recording Settings, click the Folder Dropdown [1] and navigate to the Canvas folder and click Your Canvas course folder (e.g., Canvas > 20FAMGT353352), click Save
