Record a lecture for your students, using Panopto

The University provides Panopto video platform and digital capture software which can be used to record and manage videos as well as host media created using other tools. 

Download to University computers (from Software Centre) and personal computers (from the Panopto server). There are also Panopto enabled teaching spaces for lecture capture and purpose built Video Booths available on campus.

How does Panopto work?

  • Panopto can capture your computer screen and/or PowerPoint slides, along with audio and video.
  • Recordings are published to your personal “My Folder” or a Course Folder on the Panopto server.
  • If you have recorded a video using other tools, you can upload it directly to Panopto.
  • You will receive an email confirmation once your video has completed uploading/processing.
  • The video can be shared using a web link or the integration with MyAberdeen.
