Panopto – Live streaming a Panopto recording

You can live-stream a Panopto recording to your students in other rooms around campus or around the world by clicking on a single checkbox before starting your recording.

The Panopto live stream is better suited for sessions that does not require much audience participation, if you wish to be able to live interact with your audience it is best to use Blackboard Collaborate or MS Teams.

If you live-stream a presentation you will not have the opportunity to pause the recording at any point

How to live-stream a recording

  1. Run through the normal process for starting Panopto and recording a new session, but don’t press Record.
    (Help on this topic is available on this website)
  2. Tick the ‘Webcast’ button in the top right corner.
