Panopto for Students

Panopto is a video capture service supported by ECU.  Panopto provides a range of viewing enhancements for accessibility and to engage the learner with embedded tools such as discussion, notes, bookmarking and keyword search.

With Panopto you can create, edit and submit video assessments using a PC, laptop, tablet, or smartphone.

Installation of software on a Windows or Mac computer is not required to view Panopto recordings in Blackboard.

To view recordings with a mobile device, you may find it useful to download and install the Panopto application from the Apple / Android store (please refer to the section titled ‘Mobile devices’ on this page).

Recording with Panopto is only available for video assessments.  A link to the PC or MAC recording application is provided within the video assignment instructions on Blackboard.  Recordings can also be made from the Panopto mobile application for a video assignment.

You can record and edit your video with whatever software you like but must upload the completed video via the Blackboard assignment box provided by your lecturer, which will take a copy of your file to store in Panopto.
