If you’ve arrived at this page it is likely that we’ve processed one of your videos and are using this page to explain the transition from our Flash media streaming service to Panopto Unison.
If you’ve ever asked iSolutions to create a streaming video file in the past the process went like this: More
No, not that Blackboard, real blackboards.
Despite being in our fifth year with Panopto at the University there is something that we haveve really struggled with; capturing Blackboards. Of course we haveve always had options, Panopto ingests webcams, but the cable to a webcam is generally only one metre long. With an extension lead you might get four metres away from the computer at the front. More
Have you been to one of our larger training sessions? I hope you enjoyed it!
We run a 90 minute Panopto training course (http://go.soton.ac.uk/training) where we go through each step required to make a fantastic Panopto recording. Attached below you’ll find the step-by-step training guide that accompanies the course.
There is a new folder in Panopto called
# Your secure practice folder [Files DELETED after 14 days]
This is a special folder that allows you to record a Panopto session that cannot be seen by your colleagues or students. If you’ve been concerned about trying out Panopto, as the recordings upload directly into Blackboard, then this is the perfect opportunity to try it out. More
We are making two changes to the Panopto service in one week’s time. Both changes will significantly increase your ability to get your content securely to the right people and decrease the amount of time spent moving sessions between courses.
“Give me a one line summary”
We will be creating some new folders based on your Blackboard course that will allow you to share sessions with more than a single year’s course. We’ll also make you a secure practice area that students and other staff cannot see. More
It’s quite simple to live-stream Panopto recordings. You don’t need anything more than the normal Panopto Recorder software, although we do recommend doing a test on the actual equipment you wish to use on the day.
The easiest way to live stream is to tick “Webcast and Record” in the Panopto recorder

When you press record a URL will be generated and automatically placed within your Blackboard course and on http://coursecast.soton.ac.uk.
How do I get that URL in advance?
The biggest downside of the above step is that the URL is generated automatically only when the lecture starts. This is good enough for a test broadcast or a secure broadcast to students on your course, but is probably inappropriate for an event. You can follow the steps below to pre-generate a fixed URL. More
iSolutions uses ITIL processes as part of its Service Management. We organise our processes in a way informed by ITIL, and provide reports on how well we met our stated aims. The main way that our users interact with us is through the Incidents and Service Requests they raise via ServiceLine. We have targets to resolve 90% of Service Requests and Incidents with a set target time measured in elapsed minutes.
Google Analytics is turned on within a number of MLE sites including Blackboard and Panopto. In the interest of openness we will share a number of pieces of analytical data with the community.
The following statistics are for 22nd September 2013 to 16th January 2014
For Panopto these stats are:
- Unique Visitors
