As of Spring 2017, every classroom at Penn Law uses the Panopto system for recordings. If your class has been audio or video recorded, a copy of the recording will be posted on Canvas for you to stream.
Accessing Recordings in Canvas
Navigate to the Panopto Recordings tab in the Canvas course webpage. Click on a recording to watch it in a new window.
Viewing Recordings as Podcasts
Podcasting must be enabled by the course instructor. Once podcasts have been enabled for your course, you will be able to download all of the available audio or video recordings for the course. You download podcasts using any application that accepts podcast subscription via RSS feed.
iOS users can subscribe to course recordings podcasts in iTunes. To subscribe, go to the Panopto Recordings tab on the Canvas course webpage and select the subscribe button.
Choose subscribe in iTunes or subscribe in iTunes (audio only).
Android users can subscribe to course recordings podcasts using a variety of podcast apps that accept an RSS feed subscription. To get the RSS feed, go to the Panopto Recordings tab on the Canvas course webpage and select the subscribe button (see above).
Choose subscribe to RSS or subscribe to RSS (audio only). This will open a new window. The RSS feed link is the URL of this new webpage. Add this RSS feed link to your podcast application of choice and begin to download your course recording podcasts.
