Some instructors may want to upload the recordings of their Virtual Meetings manually since it is currently taking up to 36 hours for the videos to post automatically for those Virtual Meetings scheduled through Canvas. You'll need to first download the recording from the Virtual Meeting interface and then upload that file to Canvas using Panopto.
The instructions in the "Uploading the Recording to Canvas" can be used to upload any video, not just recorded Virtual Meetings, to Canvas.
Download the Virtual Meeting Recording
The scheduler of the Virtual Meeting will receive an email once the recording of a meeting is available. You can click the "Access Recordings" button in that email and skip to step 3 in the instructions below if you have that email.
You can download any recording of a Virtual Meeting you've scheduled (and recorded) following these steps:
- Log into meeting.wharton.upenn.edu with your PennKey username and password.
- Your "Recent Recordings" are listed on the right of the screen. If you see your recording there click on it and go to step 4. Otherwise click "Recordings" in the top menu.
- The "Recordings" screen lists all your recorded Virtual Meetings. Click on the meeting you're interested in uploading to Canvas.
- You can watch the video here. Once you confirm this is the recording you want Click the download icon next to the video name.
- If your Virtual Meeting recording has multiple chapters (a new chapter is created whenever a recording is stopped and started, or automaticlly at 2 hour intervals) each chapter is listed seperately and can be downloaded individually. You can download a few versions of your Virtual Meeting recording by clicking the download video icon next to the recording listing. We recommend the "Audio, Video & Presentation" option.
- A Save dialogue will appear. Take note of where on your computer you save the recording, since you'll need it for the next section.
Uploading the Recording to Canvas
Now that you've dowloaded your recorded Virtual Meeting you can upload it to Canvas using Panopto by following these steps:
- Log into the Canvas Course Site where you'll be uploading your video.
- Click "Class Recordings" and then the blue "Create" in the upper right.
- Select "Upload Media" from the Create menu.
- You can drag and drop your files into the dotted box that appears, or click on it and use your operating system's file picker to find the recording in the location you took note of in the previous section.Click on the triangle next to the "Add files to" menu to select a different folder for the recording you're uploading.
- Your recording will upload, timing dependent on the speed of your internet connection, and a green check mark will appear to signify success.
- Your video will require some time to process (the time it takes will depend on how long the video is), but it appears on the Class Recording page immediately. Hover over the video to access settings, get a link for sharing, edit the video, and delete it.
Deleting the Virtual Meeting recording from Canvas
Once you've posted the Virtual Meeting video to Canvas via Panopto it is listed in the "Class Recordings" section of your Canvas course site. The video may appear in the Recorded BlueJeans Meetings section of Virtual Meetings on your course site as well. It is a good idea to delete the video in the Virtual Meetings section so students aren't confused by the duplication:
- Log into the Canvas course site that contains the video you'd like to delete.
- Click "Virtual Meetings" on the sidebar of that site.
- Scroll down to the "Recorded BlueJeans Meetings" section.
- Click "Delete" next to the recording you want to delete and then confirm by clicking "OK."
- The recording is now deleted.
