Panopto Content Management for Students

NOTE: You DO NOT need to install the Panopto app to submit or share content. Video or audio recordings created from other programs or devices can be uploaded to the Panopto site.

In Panopto, students can create and share their content with instructors within a shared folder.

How to access a folder the instructor created:

  1. Log in to the Fredonia Panopto site:

    If you cannot see content within a course folder, make sure you have permission to view content in that folder. Also be sure that certain content is not private.

How to create and edit video in Panopto to be turned in to the instructor:

  1. Content can be created using the Panopto app on Windows, Mac, Android or iOS. You will need a microphone and webcam or camera to create content.

   A camera is not required to create content but consult with your instructor on what type of content they require. Content can be video and audio, or audio only.

   You can record yourself, yourself with a computer or device’s screen, or voiceover with your computer or device’s screen.

2. Although a majority of campus computers have Panopto installed, not all of them are equipped with a microphone and webcam. We recommend installing Panopto on your personal computer.

    Most laptops, tablets, and smartphones have a microphone and webcam built in.
