Panopto Scheduled Recording (in Selected Lecture Theatres)

Panopto Service Overview

Teaching and Learning Video Service @CUHK (currently implemented using Panopto) is a service jointly provided by CLEAR and ITSC. Teachers can record, upload and share videos to students. The access control of those recording contents is fully controlled by the teachers. Students with proper access right can view those contents online with different devices.

Scheduled Recording

  • In addition to the software Panopto Recorder available in the built-in computers of all communal classrooms, the current system can be used to support automatic scheduled recording with the use of the hardware capture boxes.
  • The University currently have 10 hardware capture boxes at below selected locations.
  • At these locations, teachers just need to submit their recording request and ITSC staff will then schedule the recording without any intervention of the normal teaching class.
