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.
I am an Instructional Design Consultant, working at the University of Birmingham's. I have specific responsibility for the College of Life and Environmental Sciences (LES) which comprises of 4 schools Biosciences, Geography, Earth & Environmental Sciences, Psychology and Sport, Exercise and Rehabilitation Sciences.
I have an interest in E-Learning in general, and use of lecture capture technology such as Panopto, for supporting staff and students. Other areas of interest include feedback issues, use of Turnitin, online / offline marking and how technology can support this, along with the general use of different technology for learning.
I spend my days meeting staff and course teams to give advice on structures and potential of the eLearning in their courses along with what is possible at all levels of the organisation.
