What is Panopto?
Panopto is meant for educational purposes only and 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.
FERPA Considerations When Using Panopto
When inviting external presenters to your classroom, it is strongly recommended that you obtain their consent prior to recording with Panopto. Download the current, UW-wide Personal Release form.
