Automatic Upload of Zoom recordings into Canvas Studio Now Available

Canvas Studio recently introduced new functionality that allows Zoom to automatically upload cloud recordings into Canvas Studio. I have configured the integration in our Zoom and Canvas Studio, and you can now authorize Studio to upload your zoom recordings there! This integration eliminates the need to download cloud Zoom recordings onto your desktop and then upload them into Canvas Studio. We’ve tested it and it works well.

Watch this 2-minute video on how to enable this feature:

You simply authorize your Studio account, and then you can turn the automatic Zoom upload option off and on. You can also specify the location where your uploads display in Studio, main Library or in a specific folder. Once a recording uploads to Studio, you can designate the video for automatic deletion in your Zoom cloud account. This will help us greatly with Zoom's storage limitations. View the short video by James to get started.

This feature is awesome, much needed, and much appreciated. Will save a ton of time with those hour-long Zoom session videos that need to go to Canvas Studio. And, @james-neal , thank you for the video!

@deanna-de-azevedo This was a big deal! Vivie had to work hard to figure this one out and it is going to be great for faculty long term.

@james-neal Wow!!  Totally rad!!!  Okay, does anyone even remember that phrase?  At least I didn't say "boss" or "outta sight."  Thanks for sharing this great feature.

Thanks for working on this feature Vivie. I have successfully recorded a Zoom meeting and it was transferred automatically to Studio. Is there an easy way to edit it in Canvas Studio now? I just really need to crop off the beginning and end. In the past, I did it James's way by uploading a recorded Zoom meeting from my hard drive into the recorder app. But, if I understand correctly we can't upload into that app from Studio. Is that correct?

If it's not easy to edit these auto-transferred Zooms I will just need to remember to pause the recording when necessary.

I am grateful that they exist in two places regardless of their imperfections.

Thank you.

@maryellison Once the video is in Studio, there isn't an easy way to edit the video.  There is a workaround however.  This guy did a great tutorial on the process.

@aaron-garner thanks, this is basically James's way. Requires download/upload which I thought maybe I could avoid.

@maryellison It would be nice to avoid that.

If you ever want to come over to the dark side, you can get Snagit or Screenflow.  The latter is more powerful.  Camtasia is another option, but ScreenFlow is cheaper, easier and very quick.  Editing is a breeze and you can do so much more.

I can probably get a license of Snagit for Mary....

@aaron-garner Thanks for this! I do the same or use the import feature in Screen Recorder. Not too bad at all!

And another solution.  Try this very cool site.  You can download the video and edit online with VEED.IO.  Then just upload again.  There is also QuickTime for free.

@aaron-garner that sounds like a slippery slope into becoming a legit video editor. I'm happy to be that professor with imperfect videos.😜
