Interested in recording your class? Panopto is Pepperdine University’s lecture capture system integrated into Courses by Sakai and will archive your course session recordings for up to five years.

Courses hosts the Panopto features which are automatically linked with Zoom’s recording features when accessed through Courses’ Zoom Pro Tool.

If you plan on recording your class more than once a semester, you can easily set this up through Zoom Recording.  The recordings you save with Zoom will be automatically saved to Panopto. Zoom recordings will only save videos for six months so Panopto acts as an automatic backup that saves videos where they can be accessed for much longer.

Videos can also be recorded and edited within Panopto. There are different recording options, such as:

  • Audio– all recordings capture audio by default
  • PowerPoint– records the presentation slides you show on the class computer by default
  • Video– available for classrooms with cameras, records the front of the room only
  • Primary Screen– records any applications you use on the class computer, such as  Documents, Web pages, Excel Files, Courses pages, etc.
