As part of supporting the increased desire to record more lectures on the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, Educational Support Services has implemented a classroom recording system (Panopto) to assist with this effort.  The recorder was installed in 38 classrooms/lecture halls on the campus in the Spring of 2009.  ESS works closely with each school to help implement the best possible use of the system based on specific needs.

ESS provides support for the overall recording system (audio, video, software and management of the Panopto server streaming server) and training of faculty and students technology assistants to use the recording system.  We also assist with access to recordings, duplication to physical media (CD, DVD), and communication of server and recorder upgrades.

The Panopto recording system allows the instructor/speaker to independently initiate a recording of their presentation which is archived.  Students  view the recordings via a link posted within the Blackboard page of the specific course.

The feedback of the Panopto recording system has been reported as a positive, additional learning tool for the students. They are able to review material for further understanding.  Some faculty have used the recordings to assist with modifying content and technique to ensure that best possible teaching experience.
