Record, upload and manage video content.

Whether it’s a lecture, a flipped class, or a student assignment, Panopto allows Canvas users to capture videos directly from the LMS. Panopto’s recording software automatically configures itself for easy setup, and live webcasts can be created with just one extra click. And videos recorded with other applications can be uploaded by simple drag-and-drop.

Students can easily watch videos and record assessments.

With Panopto, videos can be included anywhere in the Canvas LMS, and played back on-demand on any laptop or mobile device. From any embedded video, students can launch the full interactive Panopto video player to access captions, notes, and search. And with Panopto’s dropbox functionality, students can securely submit their own video assignments to a private folder where the instructor can review them and provide feedback.

Easily provision and publish course video content.

The Panopto Canvas integration enables you to automatically provision courses, individually or in batch. Instructors are automatically made Panopto creators, and students become viewers. Panopto recordings and webcasts automatically publish to the associated Canvas course, and can also be embedded directly into a Canvas page by an instructor.

“We had expected the big hurdle would be integrating Panopto with our LMS, Instructure Canvas. But I can tell you, this was one of the best I’ve ever done. We did everything on a single phone call. I had pulled together all the information we needed, and in an hour or so, one of the members of the Panopto support team and I just sat down and integrated all 34 of our member colleges. It was great.”

Single sign-on with rolling sync.

Once a student or faculty member logs into Canvas, they’ll automatically log in to Panopto as well. And with rolling synchronization, Panopto always references your current class lists to understand which students have access to each class.

Help students study smarter.

Panopto’s Canvas integration includes our industry-leading Smart Search video search engine. With Smart Search, students can find and instantly fast-forward to any word spoken or shown on-screen in any class recording.
