Panopto Overview

Posted March 12th, 2020 at 2:18 pm.

Panopto, Bryn Mawr’s lecture capture system, enables instructors to quickly record classes or lectures and post the recordings for students to review. Not only that, but Panopto also offers features that help make the recordings more interactive as well (e.g. creating quizzes or PDFs to insert). To begin, instructors can simply log in to Panopto via Desktop app or online Platform on a computer to start and stop the recording, and Panopto does the rest. Panopto can simultaneously record a screencast (e.g., of slides presented on computer and/or projected during a talk), audio, and (optionally) video. If a recording has a screencast and video they appear side-by-side in the view window.

Where to record:

  • Many lecture-style classrooms are equipped to record Panopto. To find one, go to the Technology Enhanced Classrooms webpage, find your building, and look for “lecture capture” in the listing.
  • With sufficient notice (at least 2 business days), Multimedia Services can set up other classrooms for recording. Request this when you reserve the room under “A/V Notes” on the Details tab in Virtual EMS, or contact Multimedia directly.
  • You can also record from any computer with a high-speed internet connection, webcam, and microphone.
