Using Panopto for the First Time in Course Site (Moodle)

For Professors: Provision your Course in Course Site

You first need to provision Panopto.  This will create a folder on Panopto that ONLY your students in your course will all have access to view. Therefore you will not need to manage access, Panopto will synch to your course.

  1. Find the Panopto block in the lower right hand side of your course.  Click the "Provision Course" link.
    • You will be redirected to a new page, notifying that your course has successfully been provisioned, your students will now be able to access the videos you make in Panopto through your course.
  2. Click on the "back to course" link – and you will now see more options in your updated Panopto Block.

3. If you would like to use Panopto to create videos,  (initially only) will need to download the recorder.  Click on the Download Recorder link for your particular operating system - Windows or Mac. Download and follow the instructions to install the recorder.  Once the Recorder is installed, it will be available on your machine. 

Currently, the Recorder software is slightly different between the Mac and Windows operating systems.  This documentation features screen shots from the MAC versions of the Recorder.  Links are provided below to video tutorials for the PC version as well.  However, the basic functionality remains the same for both the MAC and PC versions of the Panopto recorder.
