​​​What is Panopto Logo​?​

Panopto is a screen and lecture capture tool that facilitates the recording of your lectures on the screen with PowerPoint, Google Slides and or any other websites you want to show. You can also create short concept videos for known issues with course concepts for students to review. 

Whether you want to record your live classroom lectures for students to access on demand or record lectures in your office for fully online delivery, visit the Panopto site for examples on using Panopto.​

​​​​​Why are we moving?

​Before the pandemic, the vast majority of students were not enrolled in online courses and faculty experience with online teaching using our existing video streaming service varied significantly.  Additional features necessary to create engaging experiences for both our faculty and students were needed so we are moving away from our current video streaming service (Mediasite).
