Record Anywhere with Panopto

Published November 28, 2017

Recording with Panopto gives UB faculty and staff tools for video and screen recording, editing and sharing, all in one place and from any device. It’s available now.

Beyond classroom recording

UB faculty and staff can now use Panopto’s online-accessible software to create and share recordings directly from their desktop, laptop or mobile device.

With Panopto’s software, you can record anything from your device’s camera or microphone. On Windows and Mac devices, you can also capture anything happening on your screen, making it simple to integrate PowerPoint presentations, visual tutorials and other visual information into your recording.

Because Recording with Panopto is available for iOS and Android devices, UB faculty and staff now have the tools to create and share recordings from anywhere. Field recordings, hands-on demonstrations, even capturing and sharing thoughts and ideas in the moment—all you need is an Internet connection.

Easily edit and share

Recording with Panopto also offers a simple way to edit your recordings, so you can capture first and perfect it later. Once ready, recordings are easily uploaded, and you have control over who can see your recordings.

Panopto is already integrated into UBlearns, so recordings can easily be shared with your entire class.

Immersive learning

Recording with Panopto offers powerful features for viewers as well. Recordings are automatically indexed to be searchable using any word or phrase that is spoken or appears onscreen. Videos are delivered to students in both a searchable web format, as well as audio and video podcasts viewable from any device.

The result is an immersive online learning experience that isn’t simply a stopgap for those who couldn’t attend the lecture or event. Recording with Panopto makes it possible to create a unique, tailored experience, and then deliver it to exactly the people who need to see it.

One solution for all your recording

Because of its versatility, Recording with Panopto is also replacing Echo360 in the 43 technology classrooms that currently support classroom and event recording, with minimal changes to the process of requesting classroom recordings. Complete information for requesting a classroom recording is available on the UBIT website.

Unprecedented support for an unprecedented service

Recording with Panopto is available now—and for those who want to dive right in, UBIT is working with campus partners to host a series of instructional office hours on north and south campus.

Faculty and staff are invited to come learn how this powerful new service works, and ask our experts any questions they may have, during the following sessions:

  • Friday, 12/1, 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. in B2 Wende Hall
  • Tuesday, 12/5, 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. in B2 Wende Hall

Once up and running, you can request support any time for Recording with Panopto online. Panopto also offers online video tutorials, and step-by-step instructors for downloading and using the Panopto software are available on the UBIT website.
