LRS & Panopto Help

Overview

What is Panopto?

Panopto is the new software application that underpins the UniSA Lecture Recording System (LRS). The Echo360 lecture recording system was retired in June 2018 and replaced by Panopto; a more robust application with many new features to assist UniSA staff with recording and post-production of educational videos. Old Echo360 recordings will remain available as view-only until they are archived at the end of 2019. Panopto recordings will remain available for three years after publication.

Automated lecture recording

Panopto is installed in 38 lecture theatres and will automatically start recording scheduled lectures 10 minutes past the hour and stop recording on the hour. The lecture video is processed automatically and then published to the learnonline course sites. Students can access the video via the Lecture Recordings link in the Course Essentials block. Lecturers can edit the video once it is published if they wish to cut sections, add chapter heading, include captions or quizzes.

Panopto Recorder

UniSA staff can download the Panopto recorder for use on campus or at home. The recorder is used to create supplementary learning resources that can include:

  • presenter video
  • presenter audio
  • PowerPoint
  • desktop capture
  • quizzes
  • inserted links
  • inserted YouTube video
  • attach a PDF file
  • captions
  • student discussion

Panopto provides an easy way to created quality interactive media.
