Video Content Management System with Panopto

Stevens has partnered with Panopto to bring a new Video Content Management System (VCMS) to campus. Panopto is a cloud-based video management platform which allows you to create, edit and share video content. VCMS with Panopto is available to all students, faculty and staff and will be fully integrated into both Canvas and Zoom.

IT is working with a faculty committee to ensure we provide the campus community with a useful and intuitive platform.

Faculty Committee: Professor Canizzo, Professor Grogan, Professor Harrari, Professor Lippizzi, Professor Manzione, Professor Pate, Professor Ryan, Professor Salman, Professor Zotti

Project Timeline

Phase I - Training and consultation starting Spring 2022 

  • Stevens licensed with Panopto

  • Spring 2022 - Early Adopters Program

    • We encourage users to join the Early Adopters Program to start learning how to use Panopto. Please visit the Knowledge Base page for more information on Panopto and how to get started. 

  • April 11, 2022 - Content Migration Start

    • The Division of IT starts the 1st round of content migration from Kaltura to Panopto. Please note during the migration, users can still access, play and download Kaltura videos. We strongly encourage users to review your videos in Kaltura and delete any videos you no longer need by following the instructions from our Knowledge Base page. This will help cut down on migration timelines and provide a smoother transition.

    • Kaltura will become "View Only." Users will NOT be able to create, edit, or publish any new content using Kaltura. All new video content going forward should be created in Panopto. However, existing video and audio content that has already been published will remain accessible until December 31, 2022.  

    • The integration between Kaltura and Zoom is disabled. Zoom Recordings will NOT be copied to Kaltura. 

Phase II - Launch Summer 2022
