TOOLS: Moodle Can Now Capture Lectures

Panopto Inc. has integrated its CourseCast lecture-capture solution to Moodle, the fastest growing open-source content management system (CMS) in higher education. With the new integration, joint Panopto and Moodle users can post CourseCast recordings to Moodle automatically, providing students with access to more engaging and realistic lecture materials.

CourseCast produces digital recordings that utilize a media-rich split screen format where students can listen to a recorded lecture, view corresponding PowerPoint slides, and take notes that can be saved for future reference. And through the Socrates Program, educational institutions qualify for free CourseCast software, significantly lowering the solution’s total cost of ownership.

With more than 23 million registered users, Moodle has become the go-to platform for thousands of top colleges and universities across the globe. With Moodle, educators develop integrated online learning environments by posting critical knowledge including recorded videos, audio podcasts, written assignments, quizzes, forums and more to course-specific Websites controlled by faculty and instructors.

A Panopto CourseCast license and open-source Moodle license are necessary for deployment.
