Adding Captions to Panopto Videos

You likely also use video in your courses. If you host your videos on Panopto, the UBalt video storage site, you can easily add captions to your videos with a few clicks and adjustments. Note that captions generated by AI are not always entirely accurate, so be sure to check the transcripts for errors that may interfere with meaning.
