Panopto is an easy to use desktop and lecture recording tool and video hosting platform. Panopto allows you to capture from your screen along with video and audio and then make the recording available within Blackboard for your students to view, all in a few simple steps. You can also upload existing video content to share with students.

Most teaching rooms have now been fitted with the hardware and software to deliver lecture capture using Panopto.

The video below will introduce you to Panopto and show you how to access it via Blackboard.
