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.
For information, resources and examples of use, see our Canvas webpage
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.

Zoom recordings made and shared for educational purposes do not require a release. If you take screen shots of interactions for any communication or marketing purposes, please be sure to have releases for the people involved.
Panopto Video Platform is a video capture and presentation recording tool. Panopto can be used inside of Canvas or accessed through your browser. You can use Panopto to record a video and share slides, documents and other multimedia.
