ReCap Upgrade 2018

ReCap was succesfully upgraded on Tuesday 24th July. We are now running Panopto version 5.6 which includes the following functionality:-

Headline Features

  • Blackboard Gradebook Integration - Blackboard customers can now integrate Panopto's video quizzes into their LMS as assignments, and access quiz results directly from within the LMS gradebook.
  • Build video presentations in the editor - You can use the HTML5 editor to upload individual media files and slide decks in order to build new video and audio presentations. Note that this feature is currently available as a beta release, turned off by default. To enable the feature, navigate to System -> Settings and Set Enable Add Streams in HTML Editor to True.
  • New analytics capabilities - You can now download an Excel spreadsheet that reports on usage by viewing type (mobile vs. embed vs interactive vs download).

Behavior Changes (these features have changed from 5.5)

  • Playlists are now on-by-default for all customers.
  • The interactive viewer's "resume from last position" feature is now on-by-default for all customers.
