Class Recordings

Class Recordings refer to videos that are uploaded into the Canvas course. Wharton provides a video service, "Panopto" that any member of the Wharton community can use to create videos.

Before You Start you will need:

  • Membership in a Canvas site in which an instructor has provided videos

Log in to Panopto

To view videos in a Canvas site, log in to Panopto with your PennKey, using Class Recordings in the course navigation bar. Choose Remember my authorization for this service.

If Class Recordings does not load, make sure your web browser does not block cookies.  There is help for users of the Apple Safari browser or Bitdefender antivirus, to ensure Panopto loads within a Canvas site.

If you are unable to view videos even after logging in, report the issue to Wharton Public Technology. (Instructors cannot troubleshoot Panopto.)


  • Most videos expire after the end of a semester.
  • You will not be able to download most videos, but when that is permitted,  you will see a down-arrow in the top right. Wharton Public Technology, and not your instructor, can answer questions about downloading videos.
  • The choice to record/distribute class sessions lies with the instructor. Students in the MBA Program for Executives should contact their WEMBA class manager to request access to any recorded class sessions.
