Panopto is Duke’s enterprise platform for recording and sharing video. Many Duke instructors use Panopto to capture their lectures, accompanying slide presentations, and more. With Panopto, you can: 

  • Share recordings anywhere, including in Canvas and Sakai courses 
  • Automatically import/save Zoom recordings for feature-rich reviewing/sharing 
  • Schedule or manually start recordings in over 150 classrooms and conference rooms 
  • Make recordings from anywhere from a laptop or mobile device  
  • Search for and jump to a keyword in a recording’s audio transcription or table of contents, or navigate via thumbnails through an accompanying slide presentation 

For details about Duke’s Panopto service, see Features of Panopto's Cloud Service.

Note: Users sharing content with others who have never logged into Panopto must add them via their full Duke ePPN ( instead of NetID.
