Panopto: Getting Started with Moodle

Getting Started with Panopto in Moodle

LSU Faculty and Staff members may begin using Panopto within Moodle after they've completed the following steps: enabling the Panopto Moodle Block within their Moodle course, provisioning their course in Moodle, and downloading the recorder from the Moodle Block within your course. Note: Steps 1-2 are for a single Moodle course and must be done within each course in which you plan on using Panopto. The steps are outlined below.

1. Activating the Panopto Moodle Block in your Moodle Course
