SUNY Oswego is using the Panopto video recording and management service. 

Setting up Panopto in Blackboard is simple. This is step is mandatory because it creates your Panopto account and folder on the server.

After you install Panopto in Blackboard, you can install the recorder on your PC, Mac or iOS device.

Panopto is primarily used for recording lectures in the classroom, but lends itself to other uses as well. Some examples of using this service include:

  • recording a class lecture in which students can view the recording later on to clarify points and further their understanding on a particular topic. Or, use it from your desktop to record supplemental class material.
  • recording a guest speaker (with their permission of course) so it can be reviewed later by attendees and perhaps others who were unable to attend.
  • recording presenter-led workshops. 
  • using it right from your desktop for recording demonstrations on how to use software, additional lectures for a class, role playing, etc.

Not all classrooms on campus are equipped with audio and/or video equipment necessary to run the lecture capture software. If you go to our Advanced Technology Classroom page, under the Equipment list you can sort the rooms by "Lecture Capture" to obtain a full list of the rooms that have it available on campus. Even if a classroom is not currently setup with recording equipment, we can still make arrangements for you to use Panopto in any space on campus.

If you are a current faculty member using the Panopto system, you can login to our hosted Panopto site to manage your recordings. Please be sure to select the "Oswego Blackboard" login option and use your Laker NetID credentials to access the account. Once logged in, you can see your recordings, edit them, and check out viewing statistics.

If you have any questions about the lecture capture service, please email Dan Laird.
