Panopto is a system used by faculty and students to record class sessions, online lessons, campus events, and student presentations. Panopto recordings can incorporate video, sound, PowerPoint slideshows, and computer screen video. Recordings may be viewed on a computer with web browser. Chromebook, smartphone, or tablet. Computer users may use current versions of Internet Explorer and Edge (Windows only), Safari (Mac only), Firefox, or Google Chrome.
Viewing Panopto from D2L or a e-mail link
Many instructors will link to their Panopto presentations from D2L or a link in an e-mail. If the presentation has been set as public, it will begin playing when you click on the link. Some presentations may be intended only for a specific class or individuals. If you are not already logged into the MySCC portal, Panopto will prompt you to enter your SCC username and password. Click Sign In and your linked video should begin to play.
Logging into the Panopto Website
If you wish to browse Panopto or search for a particular recording, you can log into Panopto directly. Simply, log into the MySCC portal and select Panopto Lecture Capture from the Campus Applications area. Look in the upper right-hand corner and click Sign in.
In the dialog box that appears, SCC students, faculty, and employees should set the drop-down menu to MySCC Portal and click Sign in. You will then log in with your portal username and password.
If you do not have an SCC account and were given a guest login, select the Panopto option instead, and then enter the username and password provided to you.
In addition to the graphical controls on the player, the following keyboard shortcuts are available:
Spacebar – Pause/Play the session
Left/Right arrow keys – skip 5 seconds backwards or forwards
Up/Down arrow keys – adjust volume up or down
