Panopto

Panopto is a software that is designed to capture, edit, stream, and share recorded lectures and presentations. It allows for multiple feeds to all be recorded at once, including audio, video, webcams, screencasts, and PowerPoint presentations. These feeds are then combined into a single, interactive viewing platform, where the viewer can not only select between which feed to watch, they are also able to take notes and search for content within the videos using speech recognition technology. These recordings can then be embedded directly into Blackboard course using the Panopto building block. This workshop will demonstrate how Panopto works. In addition, Panopto offers free access to their monthly training webinars: To register: support.panopto.com/webinars

Presenter:

Erin Knight

Erin currently runs the Badge Alliance, a network of organizations collaborating on building and growing an open badging ecosystem. One of the progenitors of the Open Badges movement, a new system for credentialing and accreditation and for supporting broader learning across the Web and lifetimes, she spearheaded the badges work at Mozilla for three years before transitioning to the Alliance. Previously, Erin served as the Research Director at the Center for Next Generation Teaching and Learning, a non-profit at UC Berkeley committed to researching and promoting technology and practices for student-centered learning. Before that, she worked for Blackboard, the leading learning management system provider. Her career to date has been balanced between the education technology industry, giving her an inside view into the inner workings of education technology development, adoption and limitations, and academia where she studied information systems, lectured and ran research studies on participatory learning environments. She now brings these experiences, perspectives and passion to the open education and ed tech world. Erin lives in Portland, ME with her husband, son and two chocolate labs.
