If you want to use Panopto, you must first configure your course to use Panopto. *Configuration does not require a webcam or microphone.

Note: If your videos exist in a previous course you'll need to configure your course to activate Panopto and then reconfigure the Panopto tool to point to the correct video location (i.e. a prior Panopto folder in a previous course). Panopto: Re-configuring a Second Course to an Existing Panopto Folder, Article 595: https://easternct.makekb.com/entry/595/
