Recording a session with Panopto (Windows version)
Panopto is the campus support lecture capture system. Faculty who wish to use Panopto must enable
Panopto within MyClasses before recording. (Please refer to the Enabling Panopto to Your MyClasses
Course and Installing the Panopto Recorder handouts.)
1. Launch the Panopto Recorder (click on the Panopto icon on your desktop) on the computer that
you will be capturing the screen/PowerPoint, video and/or audio.
2. When you launch the recorder for the first time, you will be prompted to login. Choose the option
to login using external login provider and click the button to Login with MyClasses Canvas.
3. The next screen will prompt you to login to MyClasses. Enter your SU username and password and
click Login.
4. The recorder will launch and you will need to decide what you will be recording for this
presentation and where it will be published.
a. On the left side of the recorder is an option to add video and audio. Use the drop down
option to choose the Video Source you would like to record as the primary source (e.g.
webcam). Once selected, you will see a live preview of the video that will show what will
be recorded. If you do not
want a video, leave this
selection at none.
b. Determine what Audio
Source you would like to
record for students to hear
(i.e. microphone). You can
test the audio by speaking
into the microphone and
see if the audio levels move
indicating it is detecting
c. Right below Video and Audio is a section titled Secondary Sources which allows you to
determine what on the computer screen you would like to include in the recording:
Capture PowerPoint – for presentations using PowerPoint; enables a feature to
index text in the presentation for students to search.
Capture Primary Screen – for presentations using other resources, such as
MyClasses, websites and other software beyond PowerPoint.
Or select both to capture everything!
Note: Depending on your computer, additional sources might be available such as a second
screen/monitor or a document camera.
d. Select the folder icon on the right side of the screen to choose which folder (i.e.
course name you provisioned within MyClasses) in which you want to publish
this recording.
e. Locate the folder name and move your mouse to the right to select Add New Session.
f. Name the session that you will be recording. We recommend giving it a unique name such
as “Lecture on Derivatives.”
Note: Descriptive recording names help
to understand the contents of the
recording, now and in the future.
5. Click the large red RECORD button to begin your recording. Once you are done,
return to this screen and click either PAUSE (to pause the recording and have the
ability to resume) or STOP (to end the recording).
6. Once everything has been recorded and you have stopped your recording, you will be prompted to
Upload the recording to the server. You will then be taken to the recording status page which will
show you the process of added the recording to the Panopto server:
Offline Recordings are recordings that you have not yet picked a folder for, so they are just on
your computer. To add an offline recording to the Panopto server, click Upload to Server.
Warning: If you delete an offline recording that has not be uploaded to the Panopto server, that
recording will be lost.
Currently Uploading will show the video that you just completed and its status as it
automatically adds to the Panopto server.
Uploaded Recordings shows a list of all Panopto recordings created on that computer that you
have already recorded, picked a folder for, and uploaded to the server. You may delete uploaded
recordings from the local computer. This will not affect the recording on the Panopto server.
TIP: You must be connected to the internet in order to upload a recording, but you can record without an
internet connection and the recording will upload as soon as you connect back to the internet.
