You will be taken to a Panopto recording screen:

  • Check that the settings are correct:
    • Audio: check that at least two of the audio bars are highlighted.  Move the slider to increase the level of the recordings.
    • Press Record and minmise the recorder
    • You can Pause the recording if needed.  When you have finished recording, click Stop.
    • The system will then autoimatically start uploading the recording to the server.  Once this has been completed you will be sent an email.
