Lecture Recording (Panopto)

Panopto is a cloud-based service that allows users to record, share, review, and edit video captures from their desktop, laptop, and mobile phones.

Panopto is now live!

Panopto is now available for use and is replacing Mediasite as the go-to lecture capture system for UT Knoxville. Stay tuned for upcoming training workshops, documentation, and guidance for the transition to the new platform. Look for more information in upcoming editions of OIT News.
