Panopto is a lecture and screen recording tool. It is easy to record video presentations, manage existing video files, and stream video content to virtually any device. Panopto videos can easily be embedded in Canvas content, such as Pages, Assignments, and more.
Panopto is best used for asynchronous lectures and recordings. If you want to do a synchronous recording, Zoom is a better option.
IMPORTANT: During the installation process, Panopto will ask for a Destination folder and a Panopto Web Server.
In most cases, it's easy enough to sign in to Panopto through Canvas. However, it's also possible to sign in directly to your Panopto account.
Now you can access all of your Panopto recordings that are stored in My Folder or you can use the Browse tab on the left hand side of the page to find other recordings, such as those tied to your Canvas courses.
In order to effectively use the Panopto Desktop Application, you'll need to sign in to the application with your UM-System login credentials.
