Service for Students - Panopto

Panopto is a content management system for videos that was developed specifically for teaching. Panopto is hosted at the University of Mainz and technically administered by the Virtual Campus Rhineland-Palatinate. The University of Kaiserslautern-Landau has its own instance, which is managed at the RPTU in Landau ny the Landau e-learning unit.

The E-Learning Unit Landau also provides student support for Panopto. If you have any questions or problems, please feel free to contact us at any time. In addition, you can find frequently asked questions and instructions about Panopto from a student's point of view here.

  • What browser and operating system are you using?
  • Send us a screenshot of the entire page (including the browser's address bar) from which you got stuck.

  • Student assistants who need to upload and edit videos as part of their official duties: Please contact your supervisor and they can grant you creator rights for their area.
  • Students who need to upload videos as part of a course: Please contact your instructor, they will need to provide you with an assignment folder.
