What is Panopto?
Panopto is our cloud based video streaming and lecture capture system that makes it easy to stream, record, and share videos. Panopto can capture your screen, audio, and/or video from web-cams and other devices to record live lectures, student or guest presentations, demonstrations, and/or supplemental materials. You can also upload any previously created video to Panopto to be shared via link or embedded into any web page, including Moodle.
Panopto is available online at panopto.swarthmore.edu. The Panopto software is installed on all the classroom computers on campus. You can also download it to your own computer.

What can I record with Panopto?
PowerPoint/ Keynote Slides
Panopto can record your PowerPoint/keynote for viewers to later search by keywords that are timestamped to find any text in your slide. Click or search for any text in a PowerPoint/keynote and you will be taken to the point in the recording where it’s mentioned.
Most classroom computers have a built-in camera and microphone. For better audio/video quality you can use an external USB microphone and USB web-cam. Contact Media Services at 610-957-6201 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to check out these items for loan.
Panopto can record what shows on your computer screen. This is useful for showing material from a web-browser or other software outside of PowerPoint/Keynote ie: Google Slides, Prezi.
