New Features in Panopto

Posted on: April 10th, 2017 by kdalton1

Panopto, Loyola’s lecture capture software, has some exciting new features. Panopto now allows users to easily upload slides to an existing session, change the thumbnail image for a session, access speech-to-text captions, and add quizzes to a session. For instructions on updating slides or thumbnail images, please click here.

Automatic captions are now available to creators of a session. As the creator of a session you will be able to import and edit captions generated from Panopto, as well as release these captions to viewers. For instructions on importing automatic captions, please click here. If you do not see the option to “Import automatic captions”, please contact itrs@luc.edu and request for your session to be re-processed.

Users now have the ability to add quizzes to Panopto sessions. This includes sessions they recorded in Panopto and sessions they uploaded to Panopto. Quiz questions can be multiple choice, multiple select, or true/false. Viewers must be logged in to take a quiz in a Panopto session. Once a viewer completes the quiz, creators will have access to the quiz results for that session. For more information on Panopto quizzes, please click here.
