    Panopto Mobile App Guide

    At the bottom of the app, there are three icons that correspond to the app's three main sections: HomeMy Stuff, and Browse.

    Home

    At the top of the Home section, there is a search box where you can search for lectures using keywords, e.g. Ancient Greek

    A search will load a new page with two tabs, 'Content' and 'Folders'.

    Content

    The 'Content' tab features a list of recordings/videos related to your search, that you have access to:
