What is Panopto?
Panopto is a trial service that, if adopted will replace MiddMedia. It allows users to upload, edit, store and share video with the public, within the institution, within their department, or keep it completely private. Panopto can be a very powerful tool in how and who we share our video content with.
This page is meant to briefly answer a few questions about Panopto and we have links to all the support offered on the Panopto website.
Do I have a Panopto Account?
Yes. As of January 1, 2017, all members of the Middlebury College students, faculty and staff will have accounts.
How do I log into my account?
Go to https://midd.hosted.panopto.com This will take you to the Middlebury College Panopto Home page. You will see a variety of public videos that other people have shared. Click the Sign-in button at the top on the right. Choose Middlebury Single Sign-in. Enter your Middlebury College credentials (email address and password). You will then be at your personal home page. You will see any videos that have been shared with you or that you have uploaded.
How does Panopto work?
Panopto works very similar to other video servers we have used in the past, such as MiddMedia and Vimeo, etc. Go to this link, https://support.panopto.com/documentation, Panopto's Support page, it is very thorough. If there anything you cannot find a tutorial on or an answer to, submit a support ticket (it is on this page), they are very responsive.
How does the screen capture tool work?
You will need to download the screen capture software. After you have logged in, under your name on the right at the top there is a link Download Panopto. Under the Panopto heading, choose the software version that is appropriate for your computer.
