Panopto (Lecture Capture)

Panopto is a Content Management System for recording and storing course-related video, audio, computer screen capture, and other content for student viewing. Integrated with Canvas, this service allows users to record lectures, presentations, demonstrations, and more.

It also includes multiple tools and options which allow users to do basic video editing, add captions, and configure settings such as who can watch the videos and when they can be viewed.

  • Integrates easily with Canvas – no need to jump around to multiple windows to record, store, and locate video content.
  • Flip the classroom! You can pre-record a lecture, presentation, demonstration, or anything from your office, the library, or even at home!
  • Record multiple video sources simultaneously, such as your webcam and computer screen.
  • Record multiple video sources simultaneously, such as your webcam and computer screen.
  • Upload and share any pre-recorded content with your class.
  • Enhance the viewing experience by editing your videos and adding captions.

With a webcam, microphone, internet connection, and Panopto’s recording software, you have the foundation to record! From your Canvas course, simply create a new recording from the Panopto Recordings tab. Once you are done recording, Panopto automatically loads the video into your course folder.

Once the video uploads and processes, you can do some basic editing and trimming, add captions, insert additional content, and more.

Students enrolled in your course can view these videos on ANY device whether it is a PC, MAC, smartphone, or tablet. They can even search for any spoken words or text in the video, especially if they are trying to locate a particular segment or topic.
