Lecture capture (Panopto)

Using Panopto for assignments

Primary & secondary sources

Primary & secondary sources

1. Check the 'Primary Sources' section (top left of your recording display page). Panopto will pick up any audio and video sources that are connected to that computer.

If you don't have any microphones or webcams connected, 'None' will be written next to both sources.

2. For Video: If you would like to record from your webcam along with your presentation slides, you can select your Video source.  If you do NOT want to capture video, ensure the 'Video' setting is set to 'None'. 


3. For Audio: Most laptops and mobile devices will have a built-in microphone.  If your computer has more than one device attached, select the device you want by using the drop down menu. 

The microphone volume can be adjusted with the simple slide bar showing a visual indication of the recording level. Clap your hands by the source to test this.


4. Check the 'Secondary sources' check boxes that show what content you will be recording (bottom left corner of your screen).  We recommend leaving both boxes ticked, which will record both your screen and your Powerpoint presentation.  Note:  For Mac users only, Panopto can also record Keynote Presentation slides.
