Staff Guide: Panopto

Panopto is a video recording and management tool available for LJMU staff and students to use within teaching and learning.

Panopto is a simple, easy and flexible video recording and management system.

It allows you to create a video, store it securely and manage how it is accessed. You can use it to screen capture a software demonstration, narrate a PowerPoint, or record and experiment.

The software is available for install from the JMU AppPlayer or as a free download, for PC or Macintosh computers and mobile devices.

You can also use Panopto to allow students to record or upload their own video assignments. See the guides below for more information.

If you are embedding a youtube video into your Panopto recording.

If you are embedding a youtube video into a Panopto recording using this process and then want to share that Panopto recording from a canvas page or announcement, please follow this process. How to link a Panopto recording in a canvas course. Apologies, the usual method of embedding a Panopto video in a Canvas page I demonstrated in the session will not show the youtube clip.

If you want to release a recording on a given date

If you are recording Panopto early and do not want students to access them please use this process. Publish videos using the availability workflow. This means you can set a date on all of the recordings or different dates for different recordings.
