Record a lecture in Panopto

Panopto is the lecture capture solution that is currently used in some of the classrooms at Utah State University. In classrooms with a Panopto recorder, you can capture your lecture in the classroom and upload it to your Canvas course. You can record a PowerPoint, your screen, or yourself and have an archived session stored in Canvas for your students to review later.

Before you can record a lecture, you must add the Panopto link to the navigation menu in your Canvas course. For instructions, see Add Panopto to Canvas.
