Directions for Activating Zoom and Panopto in Canvas

To place Zoom and Panopto links in the navigation bar of your canvas site:

If you want to make Panopto videos, you can do so within your Canvas site but the tool has to be turned on and visible in your navigation menu

  1. Go to “settings” in left hand menu
  2. Under settings choose “navigation” from horizontal menu at top of screen
  3. Two lists of functions appear: the top list includes features that currently appear in your navigation menu; the lower list includes features that are available but currently do not appear. Select “panopto videos” from lower list and drag it to upper list; same with “zoom”
  4. Scroll down to bottom of screen and click “save”
