Video platform selected by higher ed leaders as a product
that helps institutions improve learning

SEATTLE, January 6, 2016 — Panopto, a leading video platform provider for education and enterprise markets, today announced that it has been recognized as a Top Product by the readers of University Business Magazine. Panopto was the only provider of lecture capture, flipped classroom, and video management software selected for this prestigious award by leaders at higher education institutions across the country.

Winners were selected based on the quality and quantity of nominations submitted to University Business editors over the past year. The Readers’ Choice Top Products were announced online and in the January 2016 issue of University Business Magazine.

The awards program informs higher ed leaders about products that their colleagues are using to help their campuses excel in a variety of areas, such as technology, sustainability and academic instruction.

“When we first developed Panopto at Carnegie Mellon University, our goal was to create a tool that could help institutions expand access to education and help teachers improve the student learning experience,” said Eric Burns, co-founder and CEO of Panopto. “Nearly a decade later, it continues to be our privilege to partner with universities around the world, and we’re honored to see the positive and lasting impact that our product is having.”

“It was inspiring to learn about the products being used in today’s colleges and universities that are helping students succeed,” says JD Solomon, the University Business editorial director. “All of our 2015 honorees should be very proud of their success.”
