The remaining steps for creating sessions will only apply to instructors and eLearning administrators (ELAs), unless an instructor has given "Creator" access to students.

Creating Panopto Recordings

Step 1

If you are an instructor in a course, you will by default have a Panopto "Creator" role in the course. If you have a Creator role, you will have additional features appear in the Panopto Recordings section of your course.

When the Panopto application launches, it will default to the course folder in eLearning from which the application was launched. You may use the drop down menu to record to another folder in which you have access. The session name will default to the date and time, but can be renamed by typing in the box. When ready to record, click "Record."

Please note: After the Panopto application has been downloaded, only users who access eLearning via an ArgoNet account will be able to authenticate directly within the desktop application. All users who use a native eLearning account (e.g., ELAs, ATechs, Continuing Education) must follow the steps above each time to create recordings.
