Academic Video - Powered by Panopto

The academic video service engages students and enhances instruction by providing access to video content throughout the teaching, learning and discovery experience. Integrated with the Blackboard learning management system, recordings are viewable by eligible users on most Web browsers and mobile devices.

Replacing Echo 360 for lecture capture and ShareStream for video streaming over the coming months, the Academic Video service simplifies the capture and sharing of academic video content.

    • Note-taking: Each student can take their own notes while they are watching your lecture. The notes they take are time-stamped, so when students review their notes later, they will automatically be taken to the point in the lecture that their notes are associated with.
    • Search: Students can search lectures by keyword. If they are trying to find a specific slide in your PowerPoint presentation, they just need to type a keyword into the search bar, and Panopto locates that word in your presentation.
