Panopto is a good choice if you want to create asynchronous videos to deliver content via Canvas. You can pre-record short sections of your lectures (5-15 min) and add in interactive questions to promote student engagement.

See and Example of a Panopto video with embedded quizzes from UO Libraries’ Annie Zeidman-Karpinski. (more resources from Annie here.)

UO Online has online resources for using Panopto here and you can view a recording of the training session.

Adding interactive questions

Once you have recorded a video you can add “Quiz” questions (e.g. multiple choice or fill in the blank).

You can also link the quiz to a canvas assignment so you can monitor student participation and engagement.
