Techsmith Knowmia Migration



As of August 1, 2022, Panopto is the enterprise solution for creating and hosting videos at CU Denver and CU Anschutz. You can access Panopto by clicking on "Panopto Recordings" in any Canvas course or by going to and choosing CU Login from the dropdown.

Frequently Asked Questions

What about my Knowmia videos?

Your Knowmia videos recorded before June 6th have been safely migrated to your Panopto account. You will see your videos in your "My Folder" > "Techsmith Migration". A second migration will move all videos created between June 6 and August 1. No videos created after August 1 will be migrated to Panopto.

When will I lose access to Knowmia?

Our Knowmia contract expires on August 31. You will no longer have access to Knowmia after that date.

What about Knowmia videos embedded into Canvas?

You must manually update any Knowmia URLs with new Panopto URLs.

To do this:

  1. Go to a page in Canvas with a Techsmith Knowmia video embedded.
  2. Click the edit pencil for the page.
  3. Delete the Techsmith Knowmia video out of the text editor.
  4. Click on the Panopto button in the rich text editor toolbar.
  5. Find the replacement video and select it.
  6. Save the page.
