About Panopto

Panopto is Wright State's new academic media management system that records content shown in a classroom, such as a PowerPoint presentation, along with the instructor's audio from the class session. Instructors can also record videos of themselves teaching the lecture. Panopto recordings are meant to be used as supplemental instruction for a student to view after a classroom session. Panopto is available to all students, but can only be viewed through a Pilot course that has the Panopto functionality turned on.

If you do not have software to record a video or presentation, you may also find information about the free Panopto Recorder on their support page for both Windows and Mac operating systems.
