Frequently Asked Questions

Hardware Recommendations:

If you would like help ordering hardware, please contact us at We can provide recommendations on the devices that are available -- with many devices on back order, the best choice may vary from day to day.

Document Camera Recommendations:

Look for USB connectivity with included Viewing software. This will allow you to easily share the document camera content to a Zoom meeting or to include it in a Panopto recording. Ipevo makes good document cameras and has plenty of resources online about using them with common collaboration software.

Webcam Recommendations:

Many webcams are currently on back order, but anything that does at least 720p and has a built-in microphone will be adequate for Zoom. The Logitech C930e is recommended by CIT, but it is on back order or being sold at a higher price by resellers in many places.

A Jabra or ClearOne USB microphone/speaker combination will help prevent echo and allow for a higher-quality audio experience, especially if you will be typing on a laptop during your sessions. Calling into Zoom via phone for audio is also an option.

Video Lecture Security:

Once a Zoom meeting (class) is recorded, it can be uploaded directly to Canvas, or uploaded to to Panopto or Kaltura and shared from there. All Zoom Cloud recordings are automatically uploaded to the owner's 'My Media' section of Kaltura.

All have controls for making files available for download or not.

For Kaltura, if you select a video in 'My Media', click on 'Actions', click on 'Edit', and then 'Downloads', you can see the the default is for downloads to not be available. There are several options for making downloads available, if needed.

For Panopto, the Zoom recording can be uploaded and then shared via hyperlink in a Canvas module. A Zoom local computer recording can be uploaded directly; a Zoom Cloud recording would need to be downloaded to the local computer, and then uploaded to Panopto. One option is to use the Zoom Cloud > Panopto recording method because it creates a redundant recording that is automatically stored in Kaltura, allows for quick editing access, and provides the fastest availability. Kaltura conversion takes quite long.

Panopto download controls are comprehensive:
