Required Equipment: MacOS computer with a microphone.
We recommend using a Macbook or an iMac if you have one available because the microphone is built into the computer. An external microphone or USB headset will also work for recording your voice. The Panopto for Mac recording software works for MacOS 10.11 and up.
Step 1: Add Panopto to your Pilot course (Note - this will take you to Brightspace's external website, which is another name for Pilot).
Your lecture videos will need a place to live in your Pilot course, so the first thing you’ll need to do is add it to your Pilot course section. Students will also access recorded videos from this Panopto link as well.
Step 2: Install the free Panopto for Mac recording software onto your computer.
Once you have added the Panopto tool to Pilot, click the green Create button and choose to "Panopto for Mac" from the dropdown menu. It will ask if you want to Launch Panopto or Download. Choose to Download and install the software, following along to the default prompts.
Step 3: How to use the Panopto for Mac recording software.
Once the application is installed, you will navigate back to the Panopto tool in Pilot, click the green Create button again and select "Panopto for Mac." Choose to "Launch Panopto" or "Open Panopto" (different computers/browsers will have different language). After you press the launch/open link, you may also see browser prompts asking for confirmation to open the software - agree to those prompts to launch the software.
