Expanded Panopto Access

During remote teaching and learning, access to Panopto has been expanded. Please see below for more information on what Panopto has to offer and the training and steps necessary to incorporate it in your course(s).

Panopto is one of the leading video lecture capture technologies available on the educational technology market. Panopto is typically used at UCF by faculty who have completed the former online Teaching with Lecture Capture (TLC) or Effective Teaching with Video training courses and are scheduled to teach V or RS modality courses, however, access to Panopto is being expanded to accommodate remote learning needs for those with larger class sizes, and more campus classrooms are being upgraded to allow faculty teaching face-to-face to seamlessly incorporate the tool into their courses.

Faculty who are not credentialed to teach “V” (video) courses but are interested in using Panopto in distance-learning courses are encouraged to enroll in and complete Panopto Essentials. Panopto Essentials is training for faculty who would like to incorporate some asynchronous content delivery using the online delivery platform, Panopto. Please refer to our Panopto Essentials professional development page for more information regarding the content covered in this training and how you can get registered.
