The basics

Why lecture capture?

Lecture capture benefits staff in several ways:

  • allows staff to record classroom content
  • recordings can be accessed by students online via SOL
  • gives you the freedom to choose what to capture during a session - it could be an audio recording to accompany PowerPoint slides or the whole room. 

How does lecture capture benefit students?

  • provides an additional resource for revision
  • provides the opportunity to revisit concepts outside the classroom. 

About the lecture capture system

Lecture capture is provided by the software company, Panopto. It is seamlessly integrated with SOL. Once a recording is completed the software will upload the video and make it available to students for viewing. 

Tutors do not need to edit the video before uploading. Contact ltu@solent.ac.uk if you'd like to explore this option however.


As a tutor you are able to see how the students are using the recordings through the video analytics.  With this information you can:

  • discover the content students are struggling with
  • address these areas in subsequent sessions. 

If you are interested in using lecture capture (Panopto), please contact ltu@solent.ac.uk to discuss your requirements in the first instance or visit the Panopto website for more information.
