Why should I use Panopto?


You can use Panopto to:

  • Record your lectures (from anywhere)
  • Stream your lectures live to students
  • Add voice-over to PowerPoints
  • Create live webcasts
  • Create audio podcasts
  • Record student teaching and presentations
  • And post everything to Blackboard easily

...but why use Lecture Capture?

  • it “allows students to review material at their own pace and convenience (Coghlan et al., 2007);
  • offers students more flexibility in note-taking;
  • makes time for active learning during class by having the lecture available for viewing before the class meetings (Lund, 2008);
  • allows students to catch up with a missed lecture;
  • offers another tool for student learning projects (e.g., student-generated podcasts for interviewing locals and sharing with peers in a study-abroad program).”
