Panopto Recorder on AppsAnywhere
The Panopto Recorder software is now available through AppsAnywhere for SHU laptops and desktops. While the web-based recording tool is still available, this software offers benefits such as allowing offline recording, automatic index generation from PowerPoint slides, and makes slide text searchable. Instructions are available for setting up Windows 7 and Windows 10 computers to use the software. Users of non-SHU computers can install the software directly by downloading it after logging into Panopto.
Panopto integration with Blackboard
From week commencing 21st September, Panopto will be integrated into Blackboard in addition to accessing in the current way. This will make it possible to create new recordings and upload existing audio and video files directly into Blackboard sites, as well as make it extremely easy to embed videos in the module and place them into context with other learning materials. A final feature that comes with the integration is that students will be able to submit their own videos and audio files for assessment using Panopto and it will ensure that changes can’t be made after submission. All staff and students will continue to have unlimited video and audio storage through Panopto.
Training on using Panopto with Blackboard
To supplement the training offered during June and July on using Panopto directly, a series of training sessions is being offered on using Panopto features through Blackboard. Details about session times are available through the Digital Learning blog.
Code of Practice for the Recording of Taught Sessions
A Code of Practice for recording taught sessions has been approved and provides information on the rights and responsibilities of the university, its staff and its students related to recording teaching. The Code of Practice has been developed with staff from across the university and the Students’ Union and applies whenever teaching is being recorded, not just when Panopto is being used.
The Digital Learning Team has curated a page of Panopto Guides that quickly explain common processes.
