Use notes in Panopto

Panopto allows you to make time-stamped notes to the video. Notes will appear time-stamped to the point in the session when they were entered. Notes can be added to a session during a live-stream and afterwards, once the live-stream has ended and the lecture recording has been uploaded to Panopto. Notes can be searched in Panopto, making it a very useful tool for lecture revision. You can also download notes.

Adding Notes

Notes can be added in both the Panopto player and the embedded view.

Edit or delete notes

  1. Navigate to the Panopto session with notes you would like to edit or delete.
  2. Click the Notes tab in the left hand menu, this will expand the notes panel.
  3. Hover of the note you would like to edit or delete and click on More options(3 dots).

    delete a note

    • To edit the note, select Edit. Editing a note will not change the initial time stamp of the note. Hit Enter to finish editing.
    • To delete a note, select Delete. If you delete the Note, it will no longer be available online, and you will not be able to recover it.

    Note: To delete a note from an embedded Panopto video, navigate to the notes tab, hover over the note, click the 3 dots and click Delete.

Share notes

By default, when notes are added, they are private. This means no one else can see your notes. However you can share your notes with students to emphasise different parts of the session and create a more engaging experience for your students. A moderator may assist with this task during a live broadcast.

  1. Navigate to the Panopto session with notes you would like to share.
  2. Click the Notes tab in the left hand menu, this will expand the notes panel.
  3. Click the Make Public link. The link will change to Make Private. You can click the Make Private link and the notes to change them to private. The student will view your notes as shaded text in that part of the video.

Download notes

  1. Navigate to the Panopto session with notes you would like to download.
  2. Click the Notes tab in the left hand menu, this will expand the notes panel.
  3. Click the Download icon. This will download the notes on the Panopto video as a .txt file.
