Panopto is the University’s centrally supported video storage and management system. It replaced Warpwire by Summer 2021.

Students can manage their own video content and use the notes feature and other Panopto viewer tools to interact with course-related videos.
Faculty members can use Panopto to capture, edit, and manage video content. Instructors can make their videos more engaging by inserting in-video quizzes and external web content. Panopto is also the storage platform that instructors will use to make class Zoom recordings and other instructional videos available to students via Sakai.
