Panopto in the Classroom

Panopto is lecture-capture sofware installed on our classroom PCs which provides a user-friendly solution for recording lessons, lectures, presentations, and demonstrations. Panopto offers an easy to navigate inteface, and is configured to capture our in-room cameras, microphones, and any projected media content. Our staff offers individual and group training for those wishing to use Panopto in the classroom.  We'll cover introductory items such as: where to find it, how to install it, an overview of the software features, how to create recordings and how to make recordings available to students.

We can also cover more in-depth topics such as: integrating quizzes into recordings, giving students the ability to create their own Panopto-based recordings, incorporating multiple sources of instructional media in a single recording, and advanced operation of the classroom Audio Visual control system, to help you leverage your classroom’s built-in technology to create engaging recordings.

Zoom in the Classroom

Zoom is a great tool for faciltiating live meetings from 2 to 300 participants.  It's now also an invaluable tool for classroom instruction. Whether accommodating remote students by allowing them to participate in real-time, or by inviting expert guest-lecturers to present to your class from anywhere in the world, Zoom has the potential to unlock a variety of educational possibilities.

Our training sessions will help you locate and log into the Zoom software on an integrated classroom PC, show you how to select the right cameras and mics, test remote audio volume levels, and share projected content directly with your remote audience.

We can also cover more in-depth topics such as: sharing handwritten content to in-person and remote students simutaneously, allowing remote students and guests to present content of their own, and best practices for creating engaging interactions between in-person and remote participants.
