Experts Share Trends in Education for 2023

The team at Panopto invited industry experts to discuss trends in higher education technology and pedagogy. Popular sessions included:

  • How interactive video improves learning quality. Adding interactive features to your videos contributes to more effective learning for students. Panopto customers shared ideas and examples for interactive video learning from their institutions, including interviews, quizzes, role play, and more. These features are readily available within Panopto, meaning conference attendees are quickly and easily able to implement them in the classroom. 
  • How AI can help achieve personalized education. AI tools can help improve video quality and usability in the classroom, allowing students to specifically curate their learning content in a manner that suits their learning styles. Participants discussed the future of AI and machine learning in a hybrid and asynchronous higher education landscape.
  • Can education be truly individualized? Student feedback is a great resource for the success of a classroom experience. Panopto customers shared how they use student surveys to highlight what works and what doesn’t in an institution, allowing faculty to help individualize the classroom experience. They also shared how they’re using video in their courses to offer the highest flexibility in a classroom setting.
  • Why student mental health matters to good education. Higher education leaders can play an important role in helping students facing mental health challenges learn at their full potential. While students in crisis should always speak to a qualified professional, faculty can design classrooms in a way that is flexible and appropriate for all students. For example, a student may take comfort in knowing that a lecture is available in a video format after taking a mental health day and missing the in-person lecture. Flexibility offers opportunities for students.


Panopto Customers Share Their Experiences

There simply would be no Panopto user conference without our partners, so we took this time to highlight what our customers achieved by integrating Panopto with their wider edtech ecosystems.

Our first session highlighted hardware setups – with Panopto’s multi-feed recording capabilities, a multitude of classroom hardware setups are possible. Customers recommend starting small and figuring out what you need to scale along the way, turning to more sophisticated setups and automations as time goes on. Multiple setups allow for different technology uses – from a 500-seat lecture hall to a studio setting with a room and a green screen.

Our second session focused on the multiple software integrations Panopto offers.
