Staff Guide: Create a Draft Panopto Recording

If this is your first time using Panopto, you may want to create a draft recording to check that everything is working properly. It gives you time to use the tool without publishing directly to your course.

 

  1. Follow the instructions for installing Panopto and click on the Create button in the Panopto section of your Canvas Course (See below). Then choose Panopto for Windows and then Open Panopto.

  5. Press the Record button and make a short recording to test everything works, press the stop button after a few minutes.
  6. The Recording Complete pop up should appear, click done to add this video to your personal folder. This video will automatically be uploaded to your private folder in Panopto, but may take some time to process. Once the video has been uploaded, you will be able to share, edit and view the video.
