Screencast-O-Matic Help

Screencast-O-Matic no longer supported

Attention: The Screencast-O-Matic Western Team account license ended on June 24, 2022. If WWU users did not transfer videos to another platform such as Panopto prior to that date, they will need to contact Screencast-O-Matic Technical Support at See Panopto at Western for information about using this video management system.


Summer 2021-Fall 2021: ATUS offered SCOM users help downloading videos and uploading them into a non-CRN Canvas course in the Panopto folder.

September 2021: ATUS ended technical support for Screencast-O-Matic in favor of the more full-featured Panopto video management system.

September 2021-June 2022: To aid in the transition to another platform such as Panopto, ATUS extended access to Screencast-O-Matic's license until June 24, 2022. During the 2021 transition year, ATUS strongly recommended that any new content be created and published in Panopto.
After June 24, 2022: Links to SCOM videos no longer function without changing the account or linking to videos hosted elsewhere, such as Panopto. If users wish to continue using Screencast-O-Matic beyond this date, they may change to an individual free account (with a 15-minute playback limit) or opt to upgrade to a paid account. Unless users change their account or move the videos to another platform such as Panopto, existing links to these videos will result in a blank screen. A list of educational plans and a feature comparison list are available on their website: Screencast-O-Matic License Plans.
