Using Zoom Storage with Panopto and Blackboard (Best Practices)

The USD Enterprise Zoom account has limited storage and recordings will be deleted every 30 days after the creation date. There are a few ways to save and store your recorded meetings.

Scenario 1: No Zoom or Panopto Account but Blackboard Account

  • Step 1: Activate your Zoom account here.
  • Step 2: Login to Blackboard and activate your Panopto account from within your Blackboard course. By activating through Blackboard you’ll have a Creator Role so you can create and manage all your Zoom recordings that get copied over to Panopto's cloud storage where you currently have unlimited space available.

Scenario 2: Zoom Account but not Blackboard or Panopto
