Panopto is an educational video tool.
It can be used for recording all sorts of educational videos, e.g. screen recordings, webcam recordings, spoken PowerPoints and recording of lectures. Panopto can even be used to record PodCasts as well.

Panopto can be used to record a wide variety of video (and audio) formats.
Equipment and on-campus recording
If possible, we recommend that you use an external webcam and microphone/headset since the sound and picture quality tends to be better.
Please note that if you are using an external webcam or microphone/headset for your recording, it must be USB-based (preferably from recognized brands: Logitech, Jabra, etc.) before it is compatible with Panopto. Individual phone and Bluetooth headset might work, but that's not something we can guarantee.
If you don’t’ have external equipment, you can use you built-in microphone and webcam.
If you do not have the opportunity to sit in your office or at home and record, we offer different solutions. CBS has several recording rooms where you can record spoken PowerPoint, screen recording or podcast on Campus. In the fall of 2020 we have a classroom where we can record whiteboard teaching.

Panopto Mobile APP
Use the Panopto Mobile APP for simple recordings "on-the-go". You can use it to present a location or a specific object. You can also use it to provide students with collective feedback throughout the semester.
Annotation in Powerpoint
This feature can be useful if you want to annotate on slides. You can either annotate on blank slides or on top of pre-filled slides. As an example you can use this to explain how to make a calculation, elaborate on a model or draw attention to words or phrases in your presentation.
You can do a spoken PowerPoint with or without camera. This means that you can talk and be seen while moving through your slides.
Talking head & Screen Recording
You can mix different recording formats. In this case we have mixed a talking head with screen recording, allowing you to present YouTube videos, webpages or even quizzes as you move forward in your oral presentation.
Annotation on iPad with Apple pen
You are not bound to record with Panopto. You can record with whatever program and device you like and then upload an MP4 file to Panopto. In this case, it is a screen recording with annotation made on an Ipad. This can be useful when you want to explain a model or theory.
Discussions in Panopto
Together with a colleague, you can make a conversation video where you discuss or elaborate on a topic. You can interview each other about a relevant topic in relation to the syllabus or make a “good cop, bad cop” on a theory or model.
You can introduce curriculum texts that the students should read. You can motivate and explain why they are important and talk about which points are particularly important. You can also talk about in what context the text is used in relation to the course, and if it is important for further work and understanding.
