The following video tutorial explains how to "screencast"—record your screen—with Panopto on a Mac. If you're using Windows, please see this video tutorial on recording your screen in Windows, or this more general guide to using the Panopto Recorder in Windows.
Note: This tutorial uses Panopto.emerson.edu to access the recorder. You can also access it through Canvas by clicking the Panopto tab in any of your course menus, then clicking Create and finally Record Media. Download the recorder when prompted.
