What is Panopto?

Panopto is WGU’s video management system. The system hosts many of the video resources you will use as a student, and extends accessibility features (such as mobile viewing and offline downloads) that you will find useful as you progress towards your degree.


Watching videos created by course mentors, which are embedded within courses of study or linked within course materials, are a prominent way the video system will enhance your learning experiences at WGU.

Please use the links below to view tutorials on using and navigating the video system. If prompted to sign in, select “Sign In”. You will be redirected to the student portal login page to use your single sign-on (SSO) credentials.

These videos, and others, are also permanently located in the WGU Channel.

For specific questions about submitting performance tasks for which students use Panopto to create video, please review the following article: How do I submit my personal Panopto video in Taskstream?
