Add Panopto Replay to your module for lecture recordings and videos

1. Introduction

This guide is for staff who want to add Panopto Replay to a MyBeckett module to share lecture recordings and other video content with students.

2. What is Panopto Replay?

Replay is the University’s lecture capture service. It uses Panopto software to allow you to capture your voice, the PC screen and any PowerPoint slides that you choose to present. It packages these audio and visual elements together as a video that you can view, edit and share online. You can also upload other video files to Panopto Replay in order to share these with your students.

There should already be a link called All Lecture Recordings in your module menu. This is a link to your module's Panopto Replay content area.

If the link is missing, click the plus icon at the top left of the module menu, then select Tool Link from the options.

Add a Tool Link to a module menu

Type a name e.g. All Lecture Recordings and select Panopto Course Tool Application from the drop-down menu. Click Submit.

The first time that you access Panopto Replay within your module, you may need to configure the tool so that it connects to the correct videos. Only one instructor needs to do this.

a. Click the All Lecture Recordings link in your module menu. 

b. If your module is not already provisioned with Panopto Replay, click Configure.

c. Click Add Course to Panopto.

4. How do I schedule a lecture recording?

You can set up scheduled recordings to happen automatically. 

Alternatively, you can manually record a lecture using the classroom based Panopto Recorder. This allows you to start, pause and stop as per your preference. There is more information about this on the Leeds Beckett Teaching Spaces page.
