Student Presentations Part 2 (Panopto)

This is a follow up post. I said in the previous post that what we had learnt from recording the first round of student presentations meant that we would make the following changes: Use a separate mic. Keep the room lights on. Make one long recording and chop it up later so academics do not […]

Student Presentations (Panopto)

As part of our lecture capture trial we have encouraged a couple of academics to use Panopto to record student presentations. This is what happened. Group 1. The lecturer had an assessment on her module which involved the students giving a presentation about Youth Work. The students were allowed to do it live or submit a […]

Panopto 4.6 4.7 issue – more

Further to the issue I described two posts ago (Panopto 4.6 4.7 issue) we now know the following. Recordings made in 4.6 before 4.7 was released work on and off campus. Recordings made in 4.6 with smooth streaming off after 4.7 released cannot be viewed on campus but can be seen off campus Recordings made […]

Panopto 4.6 4.7 issue

We have run into a problem with Panopto which we don’t as yet fully understand. Typically it became apparent on a high stakes recording. We made this on Wednesday and it was to be shown to the Governing Council yesterday. However the video failed to load and we could not show it. The recording was […]

Just another Panopto job

This blog has the strap line Day to Day in e-Learning. The following simply recounts one job that cropped up this afternoon – nothing special but I thought I’d record it here as part of our Panopto trial. No one in the office – all either off sick or on holiday and one person working from […]

Offline recording

The ability to record a Panopto session offline is obviously very useful.  However the way the recorder works is not as useful as we thought. This morning we lost internet connectivity in a teaching room but were not worried as we knew we could record offline and upload the session later. However, what we did not […]

Panopto Dropboxes and Captioning (unrelated)

Dropbox and Focus Block. Although the Panopto Dropbox system works well in that if you add a dropbox to a Panopto folder it creates a sub-folder in which all Viewers in the parent folder become Creators in the sub-folder, it does not provide students with a link in the Moodle Focus Block so they can download the […]

PowerPoint Notes / Panopto Notes

I was working with a tutor yesterday who had recorded herself speaking to some PowerPoint slides. The recording looked very good but she asked me whether it was possible to put a link into the Comments box so the students could get the PowerPoint file. Her reasoning was that she had read her notes – […]

Another technical problem

Last night a tutor had to abandon recording a PowerPoint presentation from her office desk because the results were very disjointed. On playback the video appeared extremely jerky – so much so that it was unwatchable.  I also noticed that there was some delay between her clicking the mouse and the slides progressing and suspect the PC […]

Technical Challenges

We’ve had a few technical challenges in the last 24 hours. Undoubtedly they will be resolved and undoubtedly they won’t be the fault of Panopto but I recall them here for the record. Poor Quality of Primary Screen Capture I recorded myself talking about some software.  The quality of the screen capture was terrible. So bad […]
