Getting Started

Panopto is available to both LSU faculty and staff either through Moodle or the LSU Panopto Web Portal

Moodle Users will be able to take advantage of the tight integration provided by the Panopto Moodle Block, which provides direct delivery of recordings to your course, easy access to managing your videos, and easy management of viewers. For instructors, this is the recommended method for using Panopto.

Non-Moodle users will use the LSU Panopto Web Portal. The main differences using the Panopto Web Portal instead of Moodle are no direct delivery of videos to your Moodle course and more management of viewers for your recordings. (Note: ITS recommends that instructors use Moodle for Panopto lecture capture and supplemental video recordings.)

The following articles show the steps to getting started for both Moodle Users and Non-Moodle Users. Please see below:
