Panopto is the University’s centrally supported video storage and management system. It will gradually replace Warpwire by June 30, 2021.
Students can manage their own video content and use the notes feature and other Panopto viewer tools to interact with course-related videos.
Faculty members can use Panopto to capture, edit, and manage video content. Instructors can make their videos more engaging by inserting in-video quizzes and external web content. Panopto is also the storage platform that instructors will use to make class Zoom recordings and other instructional videos available to students via Sakai.
August 14, 2021. Panopto will update its cloud services on this date, requiring some service downtime. We hope to have more specific information about duration and precise time for the scheduled downtime soon. During the downtime, you will not be able to access Panopto videos; any attempts to upload videos will result in a "Server unable to connect" message.
June 30, 2021. The University’s Warpwire license expires, at which point access to all Warpwire videos will no longer be available. Web links to content in Warpwire must be updated. Learn more about next steps and support options.
Issue: Panopto tool in Sakai does not work with the Safari web browser.
Issue status: Unlikely to be resolved any time soon.
Solution: Use an alternative browser that is compliant with the Mac OS (e.g Firefox, Chrome, or Edge Chromium).
