The Right Tools to Deliver Your Programs

In 2017, University of Missouri Extension launched its Canvas learning management system (LMS) to leverage learning technologies for “high-tech” program delivery. Our publicly-accessible online learning platform enhances access to the resources and research of the University of Missouri through learning that is both flexible and immediately accessible. Our audiences can interact with us virtually anytime, anywhere. Individuals have accessed our online courses from as far as Canada and Mexico.

Canvas, along with additional learning technologies — Panopto video management, Zoom, CIDI Design Tools, UDOIT accessibility checking software and VoiceThread, an online communication and collaboration tool — are part of Extension’s suite of learning technologies to support our mission.

    Zoom is a cloud-based video conferencing tool you can use to virtually meet with others - either by video or audio-only or both, all while conducting live chats and sharing your screen. It lets you record the meetings to watch later or share with others.

    Watch this short video (1:57) for an overview of our Canvas-Zoom integration. Using Zoom in an online course couldn't be easier. Your participants don't even need a Zoom account and everything - scheduled sessions, joining sessions and viewing session recordings - takes place inside your course.


    Enroll in our short training to learn more about how to facilitate synchronous online course sessions using the Canvas-Zoom learning technology integration (LTI).

    Canvas course video platform transition: Kaltura to Panopto

    Panopto will replace Kaltura in June 2021. Course videos will not play after June 30th.

    Extension is currently transitioning from Kaltura, our current integrated video management tool, to Panopto. Kaltura includes Media Gallery and MyMedia in Canvas, and Embed Kaltura Media in the Canvas page editor.

    Faculty using Kaltura are encouraged to switch to Panopto as soon as possible for video creation. Users can add media content to Kaltura until April 31, 2021 at which time no more video content can be created or uploaded into Kaltura.


    What happens to my Kaltura content?

    Sometime after April 30th, Panopto will start the process of copying all Kaltura videos that have been played at least once since January 1st, 2019 to the MU Extension instance of Panopto.
