Classroom Recording with Panopto

Faculty and staff can request classroom recordings in 41 centrally scheduled classrooms.

Types of Recording Available

camera plus content.

Camera Plus Content recording captures full motion video of the instructor side-by-side with any materials shown on the projector (e.g. laptop, document camera or classroom computer).  This is the only type of recording available in rooms equipped with a camera.  

audio plus content.

Audio Plus Content recording captures sound from microphones along with video of any materials shown on the projector (e.g. laptop, document camera or classroom computer). This is only available in rooms not equipped with a camera.

Suggested Lead Times for Ordering

We may not be able to accommodate late requests (made 14 days prior to an event) or changes made within 48 hours of your event. Some recording rooms require scheduling staff to operate the equipment.

Before You Record

Before recording, once you are in a classroom that is able to record, open the microphone drawer using the touchscreen panel and then turn on the clip-on lapel microphone and check the battery. If it is less than three bars, replace the batteries with fresh ones in the drawer. Clip the mic to your shirt and begin teaching.

Access to Your Recording

Recordings are generally available within one to two hours after the end of class. Unless other arrangements are made, a link to Classroom Recordings will be added to the UB Learns site for the course. Students will click this link to find all the recordings.

By default, recordings may be downloaded for offline use by students. Faculty may choose to disable downloading by changing the setting on the Panopto course folder.
