» Panopto

The Panopto Desktop Recorder, available for both Mac and Windows desktop and laptop computers, allows Chapman faculty and staff to record screencast, audio, and video feeds from devices connected to their computer and merge them into a synchronized recording with multiple panes, one pane for each recorded source. It is most often used for creating content for students to view outside of class, but the Panopto Desktop Recorder can be used any time a screencast, possible integrated with other video sources, needs to be created. Resulting recordings can either be shared via the Panopto server or exported as an mp4 and shared via some other means. For course-related recordings, Panopto makes it easy to share just with the students enrolled in the course. The installer for the recorder can be downloaded using the links below.
