Panopto Essentials

Everything you need to know about screencasting

Friday, January 15, 2021
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

Sometimes it’s just easier to show than tell. Using Panopto, faculty can capture and narrate anything they see on their computers, and then publish an online screencast movie tutorial or mini-lecture for students to watch and replay on their own time. Adopted at UMBC in 2018, Panopto provides multiple recording and editing options for the video and audio output and cloud-based video storage for new and pre-existing media content. It is available for both Original and Ultra courses. 

This hands-on Panopto Essentials workshop will focus on an introduction to screencasting. Participants should have access to a computer that meets minimum system requirements and have either the Panopto recorder pre-installed.
