New Features in Panopto

Monday, April 10th, 2017

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.

Hide Desktop Clutter with Dusty

Thursday, May 7th, 2009

If you frequently clutter your Windows desktop with unused applications, then you might want to give Dusty a try. Dusty, a free application for Windows, simulates “dust” to cover items that you are not using on your desktop and taskbar.   The longer you are working in an application you will notice that unused elements on your display become more hidden.  A neat feature is that if you collapse a window, you can see an imprint, just like a when you pick up a book that has been sitting on a dusty table.  Even if you don’t find Dusty to be useful at all, it’s very easy to use and fun to try out. There is a limitation though, it was designed to work with Windows XP and 2000; it does not work properly with Windows Vista or Windows 7.
