On this page you will find instructions on how to record with Zoom and Panopto. If you are using Zoom, you will want to upload your video recordings to D2L. Panopto will be the tool you use to accomplish uploading to D2L.

The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) has very detailed instructions on recording with Panopto. CTL also has detailed instructions on how students can record and upload to D2L.

    • Download and install on your computer.
    • Note: We have just released a beta Panopto recorder for the Chrome browser. This allows you to record on Chromebooks and on devices that you cannot install the Panopto Recorder on. To access:
      • Click on “Edit Course” in your D2L course and select “Panopto.”
      • Click on “Panopto Capture.”

      • Video will default to your webcam. You can choose other devices connected to your computer. Choose "None" if you do not want to record your face or webcam (this is OK).
      • Audio will default to your microphone. You can choose other devices connected to your computer, such as an external webcam. If you select "None" there will be no audio (this is not OK). You can generally see that things are working if the audio level indicator shows green bars as you talk.
