UWE’s chosen supplier of event capture software is Panopto and from August 2016 this is being rolled out, in stages, across the university into classrooms and on to staff desktop PCs/Macs.The software can be used to record classroom-based events and desktop presentations.
For information on how to use the software, you will find guidance on the Panopto Event Capture pages on UWE’s Blackboard Support website. This covers
- Making a recording (this includes a useful quick guide to Panopto in the classroom)
- Editing a recording
- Linking to recordings from Blackboard
- Copying a recording
Also see UWE’s Learning and Development Centre’s Panopto Event Capture page for a list of Panopto-related e-learning resources.
Over the past three years Panopto has been used across the Faculty of Environment and Technology; examples of effective use of the technology include software demonstrations, short clips for students to watch before lectures, providing feedback to students, supporting students in developing their presentation style, and using the visualiser for annotating documents, for example with diagrams or mathematical calculations.
Refer to the Panopto Event Capture pages on UWE’s Blackboard Support website and/or the UWE’s Learning and Development Centre’s Panopto Event Capture page for a list of e-learning resources for how to use the software.
