Having recording access to Panopto includes the option to upload an external video file (such as .mp4, .wmv, .mov, etc.) into WGU's Panopto server site.
If you choose to upload a video file into Panopto, instead of using the Panopto recorder, you do not need to install the recorder. You'll simply use the Create > Upload media option. Using this option is recommended if you've recorded your video using an alternative method, due to Panopto technical difficulties.
Note: The video will be uploaded into your assessment's "drop box" or "assignments" folder. This guarantees the privacy of your video, and also generates a video link for you to submit for evaluation.
Please open the PDF document attached at the bottom of this article for step-by-step instructions. You'll notice the tutorial recommends compressing your video file - if uploading is projected to be quite long. The free compression tool recommended is HandBrake. Click here for how to use HandBrake.
