Panopto is a video creation and storage platform that integrates into Canvas. Working along with Zoom, Panopto allows for instructors to store videos for a longer period of time after being erased from the Zoom Cloud. In the course navigation, it appears as ‘Class Recordings’ in Penn Canvas.
Panopto can be used for automatic classroom recording (On-Campus), creating “screencast” videos using your own computer, uploading other videos, and student projects.
For help with automatic classroom recording on campus, please contact their local classroom support provider.
Using Panopto in Canvas is easy, but the process will be different depending on how you want to use your materials over time. For instructions on how to enable Panopto in a course, please refer to Add Zoom and Panopto to a Course.

Open Canvas For Penn Learners
Panopto is available for all Open Canvas for Penn Learners courses. If you’d like it enabled in your course, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request the addition.
Please note, the Open Canvas Panopto account is separate from the Penn Canvas Panopto account. Therefore, if you’d like to re-use recordings, you’ll need to re-upload them into the Open Canvas Panopto account.
