How do I record a video?
Kristin Mena Tyro
I'd like to use Panopto capture beta. I don't want to install anything, just be able to record a video of me teaching in my classroom and upload it to google classroom for my students to see. I have registered for an account on Panopto and have no idea what to do next. The website is very confusing, I'm not tech oriented at all and really need some help =)

Check out the Getting Started Page for Panopto Free and Pro that we just put together. This has a list of articles that may help you. https://support.panopto.com/s/topic/0TO1O000004XO7UWAW/getting-started-with-panopto-free-and-pro
For learning to record, you'll want to watch the video/read the article here: https://support.panopto.com/s/article/How-to-Create-a-Video-Using-Panopto-Capture-for-Panopto-Pro
For sharing with your class via google classroom, you would have two options:
Hi Kathryn... Does Capture support live webinar and if so, can end users provide live commentary? Thanks!
@Ben Lucero Panopto Capture does not yet support live webcasting. If you need to live webcast, you would need to use Panopto for Mac or Windows.
Thanks for the response Kathryn. One quick question: I hear the term "Panopto Pro" and "Panopto Free" being used and I'm a little confused. When people mention Panopto Pro, are they talking about the Windows recorder client? I just watched the video you referenced above: "How to Create a Video Using Panopto Capture for Panopto Pro" and didn't hear the presenter talk about Panopto Pro at all in the video. He only talks about using Capture. Please clarify. Thank you!
Panopto Pro/Free refers to the type of plan that the person has with Panopto. We now offer a free and paid (pro) version of Panopto for individuals in addition to the enterprise version that we sell to companies. The features/look of the different versions vary a bit, so that's why we have some separate videos. You can learn more about the different plans here: https://www.panopto.com/plans/
