TIP for uploading a video into Panopto
Wait until Panopto's upload bar is complete. You do not have to wait for Panopto's processing to complete because Panopto processes videos in the background. (Processing time ranges from 1.5 to 3 times the length of the video.) Once processing is complete, you may Trim Your Panopto Video.

Record the course lectures in such a way that the students' identity in the course is never revealed. (e.g., Avoid recording student faces and/or names.)
