What is it?

Panopto is the University's solution to enable you to capture and deliver audio and video content. This may include lectures, seminars, laboratory sessions or recordings from the desktop or in the field.

When would I use it?

As a user you're are able to record content in lecture theatres as well as from your office or home computer. Panopto is primarily used as a lecture capture tool but is becoming increasingly popular as a supplement to help documentation in the form of screen-casts.

Panopto is integrated with Moodle and MyWeb which makes it easy for lecturers to create recordings that are automatically available to their students within the Moodle course. Recordings can also be viewed directly from our Panopto server and where required MP3 and/or MP4 versions can be linked to or downloaded.

How do I access it?

Panopto recordings are made available for your paper within the Moodle or MyWeb page.  Click the recording title to view the session. If prompted to log in please use 'eLearn' as the Login Provider.
