How do I edit my Panopto video?

When you have access to create a Panopto video, you may also edit the video, if needed. Keep in mind, for short videos, editing can sometimes take longer than simply re-recording.  However, if you simply need to cut out a section of video, or trim the beginning and/or end of a session; Panopto's editing tools can be used.

 

For assistance, several Panopto Support editing links are posted below. To get started with each tutorial, you must locate the video you wish to edit. There are two ways to locate your Panopto video(s):

 

WGU student email inbox

  1. Open your student email
  2. Find the email(s) from Panopto with subject line "Ready to view"
  3. Click the view link to open the video
  4. Select the pencil icon located on the far-right side of the video's title ribbon to open the basic editorEdit_pencil_icon.png

     

Search WGU's Panopto server site

  1. Sign in to wgu.hosted.panopto.com
  2. Locate the search box (to the right of the WGU logo) and type in your WGU username plus "@wgu.edu". For example:  student@wgu.edu
  3. Click the magnifying glass icon to initiate the search
  4. Results will populate with all videos created under your credentials
  5. Move your mouse over the video you wish to edit, then select "Edit"Edit option in Panopto site.PNG

     

Now that you've located the video you wish to edit, please select the editing tutorial that best fits your needs.
