Recording Student Presentations? Flipping the Classroom? Yes!

If any of the following situations may apply to you, then read on:

Are you interested in recording student presentations for student self-assessment and improved efficiency in instructor grading?

Are you interested in recording lectures or in-class activities for students who were absent or would like to review them later (student athletes, non-native speakers, study aid)? 

Would you like to experiment with ‘flipping the classroom’ and spending class time on discussion and activities vs. lectures?

In Fall of 2015, St. Edward’s began using a tool called Panopto that easily enables Instructors to do all of the above.  Instructors are able to create videos that can contain audio, video, PowerPoint and screen capture in an easy and straightforward way that requires no complex technology and video editing software.  The example below was created using a laptop with a built-in webcam, a headset and a PowerPoint.

Panopto is available to all Faculty, Staff and Students right now.  For instructors, the easiest way to get started is via your Canvas courses.  If you teach in Canvas and have a webcam, you can be up and running in minutes.  In addition, some classrooms are now Panopto enabled with high-quality cameras for classroom-based recording.   If you are interested in learning more about Panopto, contact us at
