Access Panopto: students

Your department will advise you on how to access teaching materials created using Panopto, the lecture capture platform used at Imperial College London.
In the majority of cases, links to recordings will be made available to you via Blackboard (our Virtual Learning Environment or VLE) or the VLE used by your department. Recordings will also be available via the Panopto server.
