For Professors: Provision your Course in Course Site

You first need to provision Panopto to your course.  This will create a folder on the Panopto server that the students in your course will all have access to view.

  1. Find the Panopto block in the lower right hand side of your course.  Click the "Provision Course" link.
  2. Click on the "back to course" link – and you will now see more options in your updated Panopto Block.


3. If this is your first time using Panopto on your machine, 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.

Please Note: You can record a video using other devices and then import into your Panopto Folder, you are not required to use the Panopto Recorder.
