Imagine having all of your institution’s video assets in one secure place — where students and faculty can easily find them, search inside them for specific content, and watch them on any device. Panopto’s industry-leading video content management system (video CMS) makes it simple to store and manage all your new and existing videos, including lectures, flipped classroom recordings, campus events, guest presentations, athletics competitions, alumni outreach, live webcasts, and more.
More than just a library, Panopto includes a simple web-based editor, complete system and viewing analytics, the industry’s most comprehensive search engine, and automatic transcoders that convert your videos for optimal viewing on any device. No other video platform is as easy to administer, or as flexible for students and faculty, as Panopto.
Video should enhance the learning experience, not make it more frustrating. Today, students and faculty rely on learning management systems for course assignments, materials, communications, and more. So Panopto makes it easy to seamlessly add and interact with videos in your LMS.
With readymade integrations available for virtually every popular learning management system, Panopto makes it easy for faculty and staff to provision and copy courses, capture and embed videos, and manage student access, all from within your LMS. For additional needs, Panopto’s open API enables you to connect and extend our video platform even further. And for students, Panopto’s LMS integrations make it a breeze to browse, search, and view class videos, without ever leaving the LMS.
“Our professors all had different needs when it came to video, and Panopto gave us an answer for all of them. Now if they want they can edit recordings, schedule when videos will and won’t be available to students, and even record other materials like lab demonstrations or flipped classroom lectures.”Michael McCurdy, Instructional Technology Specialist, Seminole State College
Classroom videos are only valuable when students can actually find them. That’s why Panopto includes Smart Search, the industry’s most comprehensive video search engine, standard in every Panopto license.
Smart Search uses automatic speech recognition (ASR), optical character recognition (OCR), slide ingestion, and other strategies to automatically index every word spoken or shown in every video in your library. With a simple keyword search, students can instantly find and fast forward to any moment a relevant keyword appears, saving them time and helping make their studies more effective.
The rising popularity of blended learning, online courses, and distant student programs have made lecture capture and other classroom video essential parts of the learning environment for many institutions. But while video technology has opened schools and universities to more students, it’s also introduced legal and ethical pressures to make video content accessible for students and staff.
Panopto was designed for accessibility. With Panopto your faculty can request high-quality, Section 508-compliant transcription services for any video with a single click. Administrators can even make the process hands-free by setting classroom folders to request transcriptions automatically. And Panopto includes all your captions in our Smart Search index, enabling viewers to find and instantly fast forward to any relevant moment.
Easily create and include multiple choice, checkbox, and true/false questions to test learner comprehension, reinforce key concepts, improve knowledge retention, and make your videos more engaging.
Create and add questions to your videos in less than a minute, decide whether viewers can retake quizzes, review grades, and learn more about correct answers, and access real-time reports of quiz responses to help identify which viewers may have struggled and which topics were most challenging.
With Panopto, it’s easy for instructors to see whether students have watched course videos all the way to the end or if they stopped short, helping them learn what’s working and what isn’t.
Panopto provides usage analytics across your entire video library, at the folder level, and all the way down to user-level engagement analytic. Administrators can get detailed reports on viewer engagement and usage for a single course, an individual department, or the entire school, offering valuable insights into how your video platform is impacting learning experiences.
Panopto enables you to make your video platform a true extension of your institution. Add your logo and set your colors to reflect your school’s identity across your video platform, all in under sixty seconds. You can even apply custom branding at the folder level to represent unique branding for individual academic departments.
