Creating flipped videos (videos intended to be viewed by students outside of class) can be a great way to provide learning resources for students and free up face-to-face time for discussion and higher order learning.

All WCU faculty and staff have access to Panopto, a desktop recording and video hosting platform that is a powerful tool for creating flipped video.

You can access your own personal folder directly at panopto.wcu.edu.  Use the “Sign in via Blackboard” option and your WCU credentials and you are ready to start playing with it.

Like most web tools, it is designed for you to dive right into using it.  To associate with Blackboard, you can follow the directions in http://sandbox.wcu.edu/index.php/2016/07/25/enabling-panopto-in-your-wcu-blackboard-course/

or you can simply use the “Share” feature in each video to create a web link that can be shared in Blackboard, in an email or as a post on any web forum.  Remember that the default viewing function is that only you can see the video, so, if you haven’t associated it with a particular course and you want to share it, you will have to change the share settings.

If there are any specific video trainings that you would like for us to create and post, including about specific features in Panopto, feel free to fill out this form.
