Uploading narrated PowerPoint files into Panopto

We recommend uploading narrated PowerPoints into Panopto within your Canvas course. Panopto is a media management system. Uploading through Panopto does not count against your Canvas quota size and provides the best viewing experience for students. To get started, please enable Panopto in your Canvas site.

Once Panopto is enabled on your Canvas site, you are ready to upload your narrated PowerPoint.  Then you can embed the Panopto recordings in Canvas.

  1. Export the narrated PowerPoint as an MP4 file.
  2. Open the Panopto Videos link to create the Panopto course folder (See Fig. 1).

  3. Select the green Create button and choose Upload Media. You can select one or multiple recordings from your computer to upload (see Fig. 2).

  4. Once the videos are uploaded and processed, the recording title will turn blue (see Fig. 3). Then the video can be embedded in a Canvas module page.
