Lecture Capture



What is Panopto?

Panopto allows for easy recording and reviewing of courses, lectures, and presentations. As a cloud-enabled service, UW has strongly integrated Panopto with Canvas to simplify the lecture capture process for course instruction and viewing. Recordings in Panopto are viewable on most Web browsers and mobile devices.  Create content from your office, classroom or home.

For Canvas Courses - Access to Panopto for Recording or Viewing Videos

The easiest method for faculty to create course content for their students to locate and review.

Use Panopto for more than Coursework

The best way for staff to send videos or post to websites, students to share screen captures outside of class and faculty to share across disciplines.

Rename a Recording

Forgot to title the session?  Change its title anytime.

Share a Panopto Video to Viewers NOT in your Canvas Course

Change the sharing permissions and/or add individual UWnetIDs to share recording with viewers who are not registered in your course.

Move/Copy/Delete a Single File or a Batch

Provide Panopto Video File for Another Faculty to Use

So another professor would like to use your recording from last year in their course?  Simply sending them a link to put into their Canvas course is not enough.  That original link has permissions for ONLY the original Canvas folder. 
Here are steps for you, as well as for the receiving instructor, to follow to move a copy of the video into another Canvas course.

Save Video Files for Later Use

Place a copy of your recordings into your My Folder to save as a library of files for future use.

Panopto Video Edit Basics

Learn to trim the beginning and ends as well as remove parts from the middle of the video.

Where did my Recording Go?

Can't find the video that you just recorded?  Here's how to find it.

Move Recordings from Old Canvas Site to New

Get that great recording from last autumn into this fall's course.

Enable Students to Record in Canvas Course

By default, only Instructors and Course Designers can perform recordings in a course Panopto folder.  Create an Assignment Folder for students to record directly into.  Set permissions for individuals or group work.

Cross-list Canvas Course Sections for Panopto Viewing by Entire Class

Canvas controls access to Panopto recordings.  Cross-listing opens the permissions for viewing to all of your multiple sections.

Provide Access for Support Staff to Your Course Panopto Videos

Staff must be added to your Canvas course as a Course Designer to provide behind-the-scenes support of your videos.

Re-Upload Recording (For Files That Are Not Used in a Canvas Course)

Re-uploading files from the computer used for the original recording to the server often resolves the issues of files getting corrupted during the first upload or files that have gone "missing."
