Lecture Capture FAQ

Do I need any special software?

You can install Panopto Recorder for full features, or record in your browser with Panopto Capture. All lab and classroom computers currently have the Recorder installed.

Where can I download the Panopto Recorder?

Download the Recorder from your Canvas Panopto link on the menu or students can access it from the Panopto website http://www.stonenhill.hosted.panopto.com (users must first log in to access the download feature). The Recorder is easily downloaded from the Panopto site by clicking on the purple Create button.

What login credentials do I use?

You will always use your Stonehill username and password to log in to use the Recorder or access content on the Panopto website. 

Do I need any special hardware?

No. All you need to capture content is a Windows or Mac computer and a camera or microphone. Most laptops have a built-in camera and microphone that work well with the lecture capture system. Most classrooms now have a camera and microphone installed. If you have a special request, equipment is available through the equipment loan program.

Do I have to record myself in the video?

No. You can create an audio-only recording or record audio with a PowerPoint presentation and/or screen capture.

After recording a session, if the recorder isn't open, will my recording upload to the server?

If you are using the windows recorder, yes. There is a background uploading service that will transfer data to the server as long as the recording computer is on. Mac does not have this service available at this time, so if you are recording on a Mac, leave Panopto running until the recording has been uploaded.  

Do viewers need any special software to view content?

Panopto recordings can be viewed on any computer or mobile device. No special Panopto software is required. 

Who do I call for help?
