Automatically Saving Recorded Zoom Sessions in Panopto

Zoom offers integration with Panopto to automatically send recorded Zoom sessions to Panopto, which can then be further shared. Once the integration is enabled, all Zoom meetings that have been recorded in the cloud are automatically saved into Panopto. This feature is especially helpful if you host online classes and record them with Zoom for students to watch later.

Before You Begin

The integration only begins sending recordings from Zoom to Panopto after it is turned on. It will not apply to previous recordings, and those will need to be manually uploaded to Panopto.

Setting Up the Panopto + Zoom Integration

  1. Open any course in WebCampus and select Panopto Recordings
  2. In the top right corner, select Open in Panopto

Using the Panopto-Zoom Integration

Once a Zoom session has been ended, Zoom will process the recording. This process may take up to 24 hours. Once Zoom processing is completed, Panopto will automatically import the recording. Panopto must then process the video which may take a few hours depending on the length of the recording. Generally, recordings will be available in Panopto the next day after it was recorded in Zoom.

Once the recording is ready in Panopto, you have multiple options to move and share the content like any other Panopto video.
