Self-recording with Panopto

Self-recording with Panopto

Make a recording with Panopto from home or campus

Panopto is a tool for self-recording. You can record a lecture or short video from home/the office. You can choose between video, slides, and just audio. 

The tool is available in the EUR Client Center, and (soon to be) integrated in Canvas.

Tips:

  • Decide on the structure of your recording in advance. Though a full script may not be necessary, having a brief agenda with topics and/or a slide deck helps. If your video is a demonstration (e.g., a software or technique tutorial) you want to have a plan on what to show, where to click, and what to say.
  • Talking to a screen or camera can be a strange experience. Put a picture or smiley next to the camera to remind you to look at the ‘audience’ occasionally.
  • In general, you don’t want videos to extend 5 minutes. However, when recording a slide deck in Panopto, headers and timestamps are automatically included. You can thus record a long video, and students can easily navigate through it based on (the headers of) your slides.
