Q: How long are Panopto Videos kept online to use in my Bb course?

For Standard Sessions (non Zoom meeting recordings)

  • After 20 months, the content will be transferred to the Archive.
  • Subsequently, after another 10 months the content will be permanently deleted.

For Meeting Integration Content from Zoom

  • After 24 months, the content will be moved to the Recycle Bin.
  • Following the Recycle Bin phase, the content will remain there for three months before permanent deletion.

If you need support or have questions, contact the IT Service Desk.
