Panopto allows you or your instructors to record the computer screen including audio and automatically upload/convert it to a central location. Once the Panopto Recorder is installed, it will record the entire computer screen (or just a PowerPoint) with audio. The video is then uploaded to the Panopto server where it can be viewed or downloaded.

Panopto and Canvas

Note: You MUST use the Panopto Recordings link in Canvas to access Panopto for class files. Please view ALL help files below before contacting your instructor or OIT help.
