Accessing the Service

Panopto can be accessed via the Panopto Dashboard or via the Panopto Video link within a Canvas course. Staff teaching on a Canvas course will automatically have creator access provisioned. All other staff should submit a registration form to request creator access – Panopto Registration Form. Students will only receive creator access within assignment folders. If students need creator access within other folders the Panopto Registration must be completed with a supporting Academic Statement.


Online training resources including FAQs are available at the Panopto Training & Support SharePoint. Regular virtual training sessions are offered and can be booked via iTrent.
