We have a new digital learning platform – Panopto – making it easier to create audio, video &/or screen recordings and publish them to your Moodle sites.
Video recordings are going to play an important role in facilitating blended learning this term. In particular:
- Pre-recording short presentations / lectures / summaries / explanations as part of an asynchronous approach.
- Adding ‘personality’ to Moodle sites to help build a sense of community: short welcome videos for example.
Panopto is both an online platform and downloadable software that can be used to create, edit and share videos via Moodle. It can also be used to collect audio and video files from students.
Panopto is available now. The platform is accessed directly at panopto.arts.ac.uk where you login as a Viewer and download the software. To get Creator rights, which are needed for editing, settings and publishing you will first need to enable it in your Moodle site (by adding the Panopto block). Further details in the UAL guidance material (see below).
Training & Support
UAL Guidance material on using Panopto will be available on UAL Teaching Online from Tuesday 8 September.
Training is available in two ways:
- As part of the UAL Digital Learning programme: September dates Further October dates to follow.
- Within LCC we can run large group sessions for Schools or Programmes. We don’t have the capacity to run lots of small / individual sessions.
