Zoom: Teach Online Class Sessions [Univ. of Minnesota Information Technology]: Includes sample agenda for a class session with notes about the different Zoom tools you'd use and what prep you need to do to use them well.
Panopto is the university's video streaming and lecture capture platform. Panopto is integrated into D2L/Brightspace but can also be used outside of a D2L/Brightspace course. It accomplishes several core tasks:
Record your classroom. (Students can watch the recordings for reviewing difficult materials before major assessments.)
Record mini-lectures or introductions for your course and embed them in D2L.
Live stream study sessions with students chatting questions to you.
Have students create their own recordings of themselves, items outside of the classroom, or events and then upload them to your Panopto Assignment Folder via the D2L integration.
Stream MP4s that you have access to. (The Libraries can assist you in securing copyrights.)
