Lecture Capture and Flipped Classroom Software

Panopto is an easy-to-use tool for recording lectures and flipping your classroom. The software can be used in classrooms on campus that are already equipped with a built-in recording system, or it can be installed on any PC or laptop. With Panopto, you can record your screen and audio, as well as video from your webcam. All recordings are automatically uploaded to the Auburn Panopto server and can be automatically integrated with CANVAS, where they can be shared with your students. Below you’ll find more information on using Panopto, sample videos, the benefits Panopto offers you and your students, links to resources, and more.
