Panopto Training (STAFF DEVELOPMENT)

Panopto is LJMU’s institutional video recording and management system, that greatly simplifies the process of media creation and sharing through an easy to use set of tools and secure integration into Canvas course spaces.

Panopto is already winning the praise of LJMU staff and students through a number of applications including sharing of short video messages by tutors, recorded lab demonstrations, narrated PowerPoints, live broadcasts, student presentations, video assignments and lecture capture. Video allows staff to support diverse student needs and rethink how programmes are delivered such as ‘flipped’ teaching and broadening the range of ways that students engage with their learning. Additional parts of the system allow built-in quizzing, captioning and group notetaking.

Please make sure you install Panopto before attending the session. This is a link to the install guide.

If you have any problems with installing Panopto please raise a ticket here and signpost it to the Learning Technology Team.

The main staff guide for Panopto is available here .

If you are embedding a youtube video into your Panopto recording.

If you are embedding a youtube video into a Panopto recording using this process and then want to share that Panopto recording from a canvas page or announcement, please follow this process. How to link a Panopto recording in a canvas course. Apologies, the usual method of embedding a Panopto video in a Canvas page I demonstrated in the session will not show the youtube clip.

If you want to release a recording on a given date

If you are recording Panopto early and do not want students to access them please use this process. Publish videos using the availability workflow. This means you can set a date on all of the recordings or different dates for different recordings.
