Panopto: Video Recording, Editing, and Playback Software for Education

An all encompassing video tool for education.

What is Panopto?

  • Software to record, edit, and publish video and allow the students to watch and interact with the video in new ways.
  • Made easy to use, even for those without experience in the field.
  • May be used from the office or from home.
  • Panopto is a separate video management system, which stores and processes video in the cloud.
  • Panopto has been set up mainly for use together with the Canvas LMS for the autumn semester 2022.  Panopto is integrated with Canvas, so that a room in Canvas can be connected to a video folder in Panopto. The video folder can be added to the navigation menu in Canvas, and access permissions for students and teachers are handled automatically.
  • All UiO employees have access to store video in Panopto in a personal folder (My Folder). This works independently of Canvas. This can be a good solution for recording video and simple editing, but it is inconvenient to share video with selected groups of users (suitable folder structure and access groups are not yet available). 

Getting Started

Panopto has been set up mainly for use together with the Canvas LMS for the autumn semester 2022. Other use cases will be better supported in the future.
