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 closed captioning, mobile viewing , and offline downloads) that you will find useful as you progress toward 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 to view, 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.

Finally, students enrolled in select assessments will interact with Panopto to create, or upload, their own video media. For the Panopto FAQs compilation, click here.
