Tips for using Panopto in your unit

Panopto can be used in a variety of ways and is a powerful tool in your teaching toolkit. Here are some ways that you can optimise your video use with Panopto.

Getting started with Panopto

Add a Panopto block

To use Panopto, you'll first need to add the Panopto block to your Moodle unit and provision your unit. This only needs to be done once per unit. If you do not see Panopto from the Add a block list, the Panopto block may have already been added to your unit.
