Watch and make notes in Panopto recordings


Step-by-step instructions

Videos in the Panopto block

If your lecturer is using Panopto, you can usually access lecture recordings through the Panopto block, which is on the right side of your Moodle papers.


If you don't see the Panopto block and other items on the right hand side of your Moodle papers, you may need to select the red arrow at the top right of the page to open the block drawer.

  1. Click on the lecture that you want to watch. This may take you straight to the recording, or prompt you to sign in to Panopto.
  2. If prompted, select Sign in, then sign in with your usual student username and password. Once signed in you can watch lectures and take notes.

Videos in a section of your Moodle paper

Sometimes a lecturer will embed a Panopto video, or a link to one or more Panopto videos, directly into a central section of your Moodle paper. As above, sign in with your normal University username and password if prompted.
