Lecture Capture

Panopto (All Campuses)

  • This Task has been designed for use by Students, Faculty, Staff. For Students, Faculty, Staff

Lecture Capture (Pitt Video/Panopto) enables faculty to record their lectures and make them available to students for playback. Students can view recorded lectures on almost any device, and they can even search and annotate the recordings to help enhance the learning experience. Lecture Capture (Pitt Video/Panopto) is much more powerful than simply placing a camera in the back of a classroom to record what an instructor says and does. Faculty and staff can use Lecture Capture (Pitt Video/Panopto) software to record multiple video sources in a classroom and then edit those sources into a single video that can be shared with students. For example, a faculty member might combine a recording of her lecture, her PowerPoint slides, a document camera, and a recording of the questions her students asked during class. Faculty can also integrate recorded lectures with CourseWeb (Blackboard Learn). If they wish, faculty can grant their students access to record and upload their own video presentations and assignments through Lecture Capture (Pitt Video/Panopto). To use Lecture Capture (Pitt Video/Panopto), you will need to install the Panopto recording software on your desktop or laptop computer. Detailed instructions are provided below.
