Student Learning Services anticipates creating multiple videos in software called Panopto.  Instructors and students also have access to use this software for classes.  Those who create the videos don't have ability to set a preference of how the Panopto viewer appears. 

Each individual who views the video must choose which panel is larger, every single time they view a video in Panopto.  This can be done by clicking on this icon in the top right corner. You can also choose to view full screen with the icon on the right.
