Students look for courses and course information in Canvas. Faculty use Canvas as their central hub for course materials, activities, and communictation outside the classroom. Faculty use Zoom for video while lecturing in classrooms, allowing remote learners to join classes online. Using various technologies, notes and presentations are shared through Zoom at the same time as they are displayed to the live audience. Lectures recorded to the cloud with Zoom can be made available for later viewing in Canvas, through Panopto, with just a few clicks.
This guide walks instructors through the initial setup required to use Canvas, Zoom, and Panopto for their courses. Together, these technologies allow faculty to teach live in a classroom, broadcast teaching via video conference, and share video recordings of classes for later viewing.
