Recording a lecture with Panopto
Before you enter the classroom
If you’re about to use Panopto for the first time, you need to read and accept an End User Licence Agreement (EULA).
If it’s the first time Panopto has been used on your course, the associated course in Learn will need to be provisioned with Panopto.
If the recording isn’t connected to a particular course (for instance, if it’s a visiting speaker), contact your School’s Panopto representative. In PPLS, this is Nick Daniels.
You should also check that your classroom has the necessary equipment and software.
In the classroom
1. Log in to the desktop computer as yourself
If you log in as a guest, Panopto won’t work.
2. Open your slides as you normally would
3. Open Panopto
Start menu > Search programs and files > “Panopto”
4. Sign in with Blackboard Live, and then EASE
5. Get the mic ready
Use the lapel mic. Other microphones are unlikely to work.
Turn on the mic. The on/off switch is under the flap on the battery pack. Check it’s not on mute.
You should see the bars going up and down in Panopto.
6. Check you’re recording into the right folder
Click Record and you’re ready to start the class.
At the end of the lecture, click Stop and then just close everything down as normal. Your recording will be uploaded to the Panopto RecEd website but will not be available to students.
You can click pause during the lecture to start and stop the recording as you go. The clock carries on running, but this can safely be ignored.
When you’re done
Click Stop in Panopto Recorder, close everything down and log out of the computer. Your recording will be automatically uploaded to the Panopto RecEd website.
Your students won’t be able to see the recording yet.
However, after it’s been processed, it will be ready for you to view at the Panopto RecEd website.
When you’re logged in to the Panopto RecEd website, you should be able to find your recording by going into your Folders. From here, you can watch the video and make minor edits.
