The basics

How to start recording

Once you have successfully signed into the Panopto recorder, the screen will show you all the settings you can use to customise your recordings.

You can start recording straight away by using the defaults but check the following settings to make sure they meet your requirements:

  • Check the folder you are recording to and add a name.
  • Check your primary sources.
  • Check your secondary sources.


Below is an interactive example of the menu of the Panopto recorder.  Hover your mouse over the different sections to see how they work.  For more detail read on in subsequent pages. 

Ignore the 'previous' and 'next' buttons.
