Panopto for Student Vlogs

Panopto is the Marist version of Youtube. It enables professors and students of Marist to record and upload recordings through the iLearn system and have more control over who has access to them. With Panopto, you have the option to share recordings publicly, but it is not necessary- unlike Youtube. Professors and students are able to record and share recordings more privately and efficiently. Professors are able to record and embed videos in course content and lessons, while students are able to record and upload recordings (i.e. vlogs) to iLearn to share with professors or other students.
