Schedule Meetings and Automatically Upload Recordings to Canvas

How to Schedule Zoom Meetings in Canvas and Automatically Share Recordings in the Course Site


Schedule a Zoom Meeting


  • Add ShareStream Course Media to your course navigation
  • Enter ShareStream Course Media and click on Scheduler
  • Click on Schedule an Event

    • The first time you schedule an event you will connect your Zoom and ShareStream accounts. This is a one-time task:
    • Click on the button, Connect Zoom Account
    • Sign in to Zoom using your email and password
    • Authorize ShareStream to access your Zoom account. A confirmation will display saying, Authentication Successful
    • Return to ShareStream Course Media, select Scheduler and click on Schedule an Event
  • Set the date and time for your meeting
  • Save
  • Schedule an Event for each meeting. We cannot use recurring or instant Zoom meetings. ShareStream must have a unique link for each meeting in order to manage the recording.


Start a Scheduled Zoom Meeting


  • Enter ShareStream Course Media in the course navigation
  • Select Scheduler
  • Hover your cursor over the event and click on Start Event
  • Sign In to Start the Zoom Meeting as the Host
  • In the Zoom meeting click on Record
  • Select Record to the cloud
  • When you End the Meeting for All, Zoom will process the video and deliver it to ShareStream
  • The recording will appear in your Canvas course site ShareStream Course Media in the Pick-n-Play


Share the Zoom Meeting Recording

Students can enter ShareStream Course Media where they will find the recording displayed in the Pick-n-Play list
