Welcome back! It’s a new semester, and with that comes planning several month’s worth of lectures. Most certainly you have pondered the idea of recording your lectures, but maybe decided against the idea because it required too much setup at the beginning and end of the class.

Worry no more with the Panopto Remote Recorder software! This software takes all the setup out of your hands. So what is this Panopto Remote Recorder software? It is an application that, by request, can be installed on a classroom computer and can automatically record a single event or a weekly recurring lecture. Once you have filled out the proper request form, a UA campus Panopto admin can schedule your recordings based on the location, date, and time of your lectures. The recordings will then be automatically uploaded to the Panopto folder of your choice. Depending on the specific technology in the classroom the software can record audio from a microphone source, video if a webcam is installed, as well as anything that occurs on the instructor computer screen.

The only thing that is required from the instructor is to show up to the classroom, login to the instructor computer, and teach their class as they normally do. The recording will automatically start and end at the date/time it was scheduled. Once the class is over it automatically uploads to the appropriate Panopto folder.
