Panopto Essentials

Panopto Essentials is training for faculty who would like to incorporate some asynchronous content delivery using the online delivery platform, Panopto. Completing either the online course or live workshop is required for those faculty wishing to use Panopto in their distance-learning courses, with the exception of faculty already credentialed to teach “V” (video) courses. Once completed, Panopto can be used in distance-learning courses for all subsequent semesters. You are welcome to take the course and attend the workshop, but you will only need to complete one.
