To support video-based teaching, the e-learning group has set up the new web-based video platform Panopto. This is used for video management and provision. However, integrated recorders also facilitate the recording and editing of screen recording videos. The platform can also be used for live streams (called "webcasts" in Panopto) as an alternative to YouTube and Co.
Panopto is campus-licensed and available at TU Darmstadt since October 15th, 2020. Panopto is linked to the learning platform Moodle so that a login via TU-ID is possible as well as easy integration of videos into Moodle courses.
Access to Panopto: https://tu-darmstadt.cloud.panopto.eu.
(Please note: You can upload, create and manage videos there only after you have got creator rights – for this you need to connect at least one Moodle course with Panopto – see description below)
To produce videos with Panopto and to be able to store them there, you need creator rights. You can get them by initially connecting at least one Moodle course with Panopto (in Moodle this function is called “Provision course”).
The connection synchronizes the rights for a Moodle course with Panopto so that all roles of a course also get the corresponding rights for Panopto.
The connection should be made with each Moodle course in which you want to make videos from Panopto available.
In this video tutorial 01 (in German) you will learn how to do the connection of a Moodle course with Panopto. (You can switch on English subtitles by clicking on the „CC“ button in the video player at the bottom right.)
Integrating videos from Panopto into Moodle can be done in several ways:
In this video tutorial 02 (in German) you will learn how to implement the different ways. (You can switch on English subtitles by clicking on the „CC“ button in the video player at the bottom right.)
Besides the video tutorials 01 & 02, you'll also find the video tutorial 03 “How to configure access control to my videos and folders?” in the section “Video tutorials for using Panopto”.
