HI All

I was wondering if any of your institutions are using a lecture / event capture tools? If, so how are you integrating this this with Canvas?

Here in Birmingham we are using the Panopto system. This is integrated into our Canvas system, so users authenticate via Canvas to either make a recording or view them. It is an opt in service, meaning lecturing staff can choose to record sessions or not.

If it is enabled on the Canvas course the Panopto link appears in the Canvas course menu and provides a direct link to the corresponding Panopto folder

All of our teaching rooms are set up with the recording software and required hardware, with our staff being free to download the software to their machines.

It is primarily used for lecture capture, but some staff are now using it more for flipped classroom model of teaching or to record supportive material for students.

So what are other peoples experiences?
