Video and Collaboration

Record a video clip to include in my course



Panopto can be used to upload or record video from your webcam or mobile device.  These videos can easily be included in your course material on Canvas. Go to our Panopto page for instructions on how to use Panopto. Panopto is the recommended video recording platform as it has no limits on the amount of video that can be recorded.



Canvas allows the recording of shorter video snippets using it’s in-built video recorder. The Canvas support pages contains information on how to create your own video snippets
