I want to record myself and a screen

Selecting a Camera and Microphone

Panopto Express will automatically select your built-in camera and microphone. To change these options, select the "Audio" and/or "Video" option from the top navigation: 

Top Toolbar, Panopto Express. On it, both the "Audio" and "Video" options are highlighted by a red box


Select a Screen 

Select the "Screens and Apps" icon: 

Top Toolbar, Panopto Express. On it, the "Screens and Apps" option is highlighted by a red box

The “Share your screen” menu will appear. To select your screen, select “Your Entire Screen” and then select “Share.”  If you want to share your screen’s audio, select the checkbox next to “Share audio.”  Note: in this example image, the user has two screens: a laptop screen and an additional monitor. If you only have one screen, or share the screen you are using Panopto Express on, it will create an endless, mirrored effect until you minimize the Express recorder. Your screen will still be recorded. 

 "Share your screen" pop-out menu. On it, the tab "Your Entire Screen" appears and two screen options appear on it


Arrange Your Video Sources

Select the gear icon from the lower-left corner of the recorder to open the Settings menu: 

Panopto Express Recorder. In the bottom right corner, the Settings icon (a gear) is highlighted by a red box

In the section "Video Layout," you can select one of the following options: 

Picture in Picture




This will show all of the streams tiled into one video. The tiles will automatically resize, depending on how many streams were recorded:

The secondary video is featured, and the primary video will appear in the lower right-hand corner: 

Panopto Express Recorder. On it, the Picture-in-Picture view appears - where one screen appears embedded within another




When you're ready to record, select the record button: 

Record button: a large, red circle located in the bottom middle of the Panopto Express Recorder.  

When you're done recording, select the stop button: 

Stop button, Panopto Express recorder. It is a red square inside of a circle, located in the bottom-middle of the Panopto Express recorder. It only appears when a recording is in progress.
