Benefits of Panopto

  • Automated: To support the Lecture Recording ‘All-In’ Policy, all timetabled 'Lectures' that occur in equipped centrally timetabled 40+ seat teaching spaces will be automatically scheduled for capture, eliminating the need to request this prior to teaching. Other teaching activities such as ‘Tutorials’, ‘Lectorials’, ‘Seminars’, ‘Workshops’, will need to be OPTed-IN for recording. Contact the Learning Technologies Support Team to request for these activities to be recorded.
  • Versatile: Panopto can capture anything on the computer screens (from PowerPoint slides to complex animations), document cameras, and video from just about any camera.  
    All equipped teaching spaces will have the ability to record each audio/visual device available to use (Lectern PC, document camera, BYOD, microphones). The teaching space will also have a recording light to indicate the state of recording.
    Once captured, Panopto processes the recording into an interactive, searchable web format and audio and video podcasts that students can watch on any device.
  • Enhanced Student Experience: Students can view and download all recorded video streams, add notes and bookmarks that are timestamped contextually to the video and use Panopto's intelligent search to pinpoint essential moments in the videos.
  • LMS Integration: Content created by or uploaded to Panopto will be automatically published to the relevant Course Site(s)** for students to access.  Video content can be embedded inline with course materials or be made available as a playlist for students to watch.
  • Manageable: Panopto helps ensure that all recordings are captured and stored according to the Universities Lecture Recording ‘All-In’ Policy.  A wide range of reports is available to help understand how recordings are consumed and the level of the student's engagement.
    Panopto also has both basic and advanced content editing features.
  • Searchable: Panopto automatically indexes all of the recordings so that students can find and fast-forward to specific words or phrases in the lecture or navigate to crucial moments via an automatically generated table of contents.
