The answer depends on what you want to do with Panopto. If you just want to view Panopto recordings, all you need is a link to the video (often embedded in a web page or Moodle course) and a compatible web browser or mobile device.
As a viewer of Panopto recordings, your main interaction with Panopto will be accessing links to recordings, for example in a Moodle course. Certain types of links may ask you to log in. If that happens, just log in with Google and your St. Olaf account. If you still can’t access the video, the person who created the video will need to change the sharing settings.
If you are creating Panopto content, you can view, share, edit and organize your recordings in the Panopto Video Library. All St. Olaf users automatically have a Panopto account, just log in using Google. You can also initiate recordings from the library. The video library is accessed by visiting go.stolaf.edu/panopto.
To make a Panopto recording, you will need to download the Panopto Recorder or use Capture, the browser-based recorder. Both can be accessed from the Create menu in the video library.
