Panopto is a screencasting video recording tool. It allows instructors to record a lecture and/ or create an interactive video during which they can share documents like screen shares, PowerPoint, videos, and texts among others. Instructors are able to recreate a virtual classroom and an interaction similar to what would normally take place in a traditional classroom environment. As students see their instructor discussing supporting documents on-screen, they receive an enhanced learning experience and more engaging lessons.
