Classroom Recording with Panopto

Faculty and staff can request classroom recordings from two digital recording types using Panopto.

Audio Plus Content recording captures sound from microphones along with frame-grabbed video of any visual materials shown on the projector (e.g. laptop, Wolf Visualizer or classroom computer). 

Camera Plus Content recording captures full motion video of the instructor side-by-side with any visual materials shown on the projector (e.g. laptop, Wolf Visualizer, or classroom computer).  

Order Recording

After the initial order is placed a UBIT staff member will contact you.

Video recordings require use of a room outfitted with appropriate technology and some recording types require a Student Assistant to operate the equipment. Sufficient advance notice is therefore required when requesting video recording services. Rooms are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.

Suggested Lead Times for Ordering

Class related: Submit your recording request when your class is scheduled or when seating a class becomes available. If changes are needed throughout the semester, please try to give at least 2 weeks’ notice so that we can accommodate schedule changes.

Event related: We require a minimum of 2 weeks advanced notice for any recording requests or any changes to existing recordings.

Access to Your Recording

All digital recordings are streamed and require an active Internet connection for viewing.  By default, recordings can be downloaded for offline use. Faculty may choose to disallow these downloads per individual recording or for an entire course.
After a class is finished recording in Panopto, the video needs to be processed by the streaming server.  Depending on the time of day and load on the system, recordings are generally available within  one to two hours after the end of class.  Faculty may add links to the recordings in UBlearns or they can be sent by email or added to a separate web page as desired.
