Your Panopto Account

Here is an overview of your individual Panopto Account once you complete the workshop and complete the activation survey. 


Your Panopto Account


Once you complete the On-Demand workshop to get a sense of the basics, you will complete a short survey. Then, the MyCourses4faculty team will activate your account. Once we do, here is what you can expect. 

  • Complete the survey found in the On-Demand Workshop to activate your account. Activation details will come via email.

  • Do NOT visit the Panopto Website (Titan Video) before completing the activation process, or you will be logged in as a viewer.

  • You will be automatically logged into your personal Panopto account using single sign-on every time you go to the Panopto site. You do NOT need to create an account or set up a different password. 
  • You do NOT need to download Panopto software to your computer, you can do everything you need from the website.  
  • Your account will not be set up correctly if you visit the website first without having us activate your account. 
  • On the Panopto site, you will have a personal folder called your "My Folder" where you can create and edit videos without anyone else seeing them. This folder is private to you. You can then add videos from this folder to your courses when you are ready. 
  • On the Panopto site, you will be able to share videos with other faculty or your department to edit and access. You can also share videos with a link to anyone! 
  • You can create Panopto videos directly in MyCourses! These videos will be stored in your account on the website
