Tips before recording

Basics of sharing

Importing videos into Panopto

Panopto Analytics help identify the most engaged learners as well as those struggling with particular topics. 

Note: anonymous statistics appear any time a session is viewed by someone who is not logged into Panopto. If your session is shared publicly on the web or to anyone with the link then viewers can watch without logging in.

Lecture Capture at ECU

The Lecture Capture Policy outlines the principles to be applied by the University, in relation to the recording of all undergraduate and postgraduate Lectures in technology-enabled dedicated teaching spaces.

Copyright guidance for Staff

Visit the Strategic and Governance Services web site with details on Copyright for Staff

Section 28 of the Copyright Act does not allow reproduction. Only material broadcast from Australian free to air or ECU subscription TV or radio can be freely included in a recorded lecture.

Where material is included in a recorded lecture, and such material is (or is taken from) a broadcast from Australian free to air or subscription TV or radio, the reproduction of that material and its communication to students through a password protected platform such as blackboard will be covered by the statutory licence under the Copyright Act.

If third-party material is not a broadcast from Australian free to air or subscription TV or radio (e.g. a Netflix show or a YouTube clip) it should not be included in a recording (TechSmith, Camtasia, Collaborate) unless consent is obtained from the copyright holder.

The Australian Copyright Council provides guidance on the use of audiovisual material by educational institutions.
