Service Overview

Panopto is the University of Richmond’s lecture capture recording and delivery platform. Panopto is a cloud-based service that works in tandem with a desktop application that is used to record lectures in classrooms, or at your desk (commonly used for flipped classroom applications). Once the lecture has been recorded, it can be shared with students and accessed within the associated Blackboard course. Pre-recorded content (such as a Zoom meeting recording) can also be uploaded, and shared the same way.

Panopto also has a dedicated portal that allows for non-academic (non-Blackboard) use. This, too, allows for the use of the desktop application and uploading pre-recorded content.
