Panopto is the video platform used by the University of Iceland, teachers use it to record or stream lectures and teaching material. The Panopto recorder is relatively easy to use and the recordings can be accessed from most browsers and devices.
Panopto can be used wherever you are. The Panopto client is set up in every classroom at the University but teachers can also set it up on their own computers and record from home. The program is available for download in Canvas, simply navigate to the course you want to record for, click on Panopto Video - then create and record a new session
