How to Insert a Panopto Video into a Canvas Course

As we have moved from D2L, we will no longer have D2L Capture. Our new lecture capture system is called “Panopto.” If you had videos in Capture, they have been moved for you. If you plan on recording additional videos, you will need to use Panopto.

Below you will find instructions for inserting a Panopto video in a Canvas course.
