Requirements for scheduling:

*We are unable to schedule recordings for quiz sections, and we will not manually schedule recordings for independent study course sessions or events not specifically intended for students within an academic course. However, instructors may record on their laptops and use the classroom microphones and cameras if the classroom has an AV Bridge.

  • Do you want to live stream the recording?

NOTE: We are NOT able to schedule a Panopto recording over the phone. We need the above information in writing via email.
