Panopto is a video recording, editing, and sharing platform that instructors can use to create learning content for students to interact with asynchronously. A Panopto recording can include audio, webcam video of the instructor teaching, screen recording and slide recording, and secondary camera sources. The Panopto recorder is an application that is downloaded to your computer and used to create new recordings, and video editing and management is handled in the Panopto UW website. Thanks to an integration with Canvas, though, the process of creating a new Panopto recording and adding it to your Canvas course can be started and finished within Canvas.

Here’s a video introduction that walks through the basic process of recording and sharing with Panopto.
