Lecture Capture


Lecture capture enables the video capture of a class lecture or presentation using the computer in a classroom, in an office, or from home.  The supported lecture capture application, Panopto, is used primarily for instructional purposes.  However, it may be used for other purposes like providing training videos or capturing visiting speakers.

Available To        

Faculty, Students, Staff          


  • The Panopto Recorder, a built-in computer camera and a microphone or a webcam are all that is needed to record the voice, and optionally video of a presenter and the contents of their computer screen, like a PowerPoint slide or a web page.  It's also possible to record in a browser.
  • The recording is uploaded to the Panopto server where it is available for access.
  • The interface to record, save, and edit lectures is very intuitive and easy to use.
  • Recordings are automatically captioned using Panopto machine-generate captions.  Captions can be edited if needed.
  • Integration with Canvas allows students easy access to recordings in a course. 
  • Student assignments can be created using the Panopto Recorder on their own computers and then submitting it to their instructor via a Canvas assignment or a Panopto assignment folder.  Examples of assignments include presentations, digital storytelling, and foreign language practice sessions.
