What you need to do

Logging into Panopto

Most users will experience and manage Panopto content through Canvas, however, instructors and staff may also access Panopto directly via the Panopto web interface. Follow these instructions if you are an instructor or staff and would like to manage Panopto content outside of Canvas using the Panopto web interface.
