How do I record a session using Panopto Capture?

Panopto Capture is a web-based recorder that allows you to record video, audio, screens, or applications without downloading the Panopto Recorder.  This is an excellent tool for recording and sharing short recordings with your class. To access Panopto Capture, follow the same steps outlined in the directions for navigating to Panopto through Sakai.

Note: PowerPoint slides will not integrate with a Panopto Capture recording in the same way as a recording created with the Panopto Recorder. In order to share slides, you can present your slides by sharing your computer screen.
