Get Started with Lecture Capture at SUNY Oswego


Over the past 3 semesters, CTS has supported a software application across campus called Panopto. With Panopto, not only can you create recordings in the classroom, but you can also do it from home, your office, or even the airport with the mobile application (currently Apple iOS only).

Not only does Panopto make it easy to create recordings, it also makes it incredibly easy to share them on blogs, through email, websites, and in ANGEL. Even on Facebook, Twitter, or any other social media site of your choice.

If you would like to hear how to get started, come to one of our Panopto workshops:

Thursday, January 9th, 2pm at Campus Center 202

Tuesday, January 21st, 2pm at Campus Center 210

Wednesday, February 12, 3pm at Mahar 210

For more information, please visit www.oswego.edu/cts/capture or email lecturecapture-list@ls.oswego.edu. The website shows you how to use the system, faculty testimonials, and actual classroom recordings made public by people using the system, so be sure to check it out.

Lecture Capture Pilot Project Continues to the Spring 2012 Semester

Over the last year, CTS has been piloting lecture capture products used for recording presentations and lectures.  The service has been primarily used for capturing faculty class lectures so students can then review the lecture material later.  CTS will continue this pilot in the Spring semester with two capture products, echo360 and Tegrity.

We are actively seeking faculty and staff interested in participating in the Spring pilot project.  If you would like to participate or receive more information, please fill out the Lecture Capture Pilot Participation form.

Fall Semester Pilot Projects

Below is a list of some technology projects that are being piloted with select groups of faculty and staff this fall semester.

  • Panopto software is being used this semester to pilot lecture capture.  Last year, Camtasia was piloted with overall success.  We are trying a different software this year to help us make a final decision on lecture capture software to be used in the new Sciences building when it opens.
  • The Elluminate software used for synchronous online teaching and meetings is being piloted on campus this fall semester.  Approximately ten faculty and staff will be using it to teach courses, conduct workshops and hold meetings all online.  Workshops have been offered for these users and we look forward to their feedback on their usage of it.  Elluminate is currently being hosted by SUNY ITEC with additional user support of the product through SLN.
  • The Windows 7 operating system will soon be installed on Campus Technology staff computers.  CTS staff will pilot the operating system to determine if there are any issues that we will need to address to help prepare for a full campus upgrade.
