Panopto is the multi-media tool provided to all University of New Orleans faculty. Panopto is an easy-to-use screen and classroom-lecture capturing software. In addition, it can be used to record, edit, and share recordings from other sources including webcams, smart phone cameras - any device capable of creating standard audio and video files.

Panopto can capture your screen, audio, and/or video inputs from webcams and other devices to record live lectures, demonstrations, and/or supplemental materials. Panopto is integrated with Moodle so videos may be viewed only by users enrolled in your course, but like other video streaming services with which you are familiar such as YouTube and Vimeo, your Panopto content can also be set to allow several levels of access. Other Panopto features include:

  • Automatically recognizes any recording device you want to use.
  • Allows instructors and students to take notes while viewing presentation.
  • Notes and PowerPoint slides are automatically searchable.
  • No Internet connection is required to record content.
