Lecture Capture Service (LCS) for Teachers

Panopto

The HKU Lecture Capture Service (LCS) is powered by Panopto lecture capture system, being integrated with the Moodle LMS, the service supports our teachers and students to do video recording, playing back through Moodle courses, video management, editing, sharing, and inside-video searching.

Panopto is the lecture capture solution centrally managed by ITS. Panopto recordings (called “Pancasts”) can be easily linked to Moodle courses. Panopto supports recording of audio and video input to any laptop, synchronized with Microsoft PowerPoint presentation and desktop screen of your Windows/Macintosh. Some classrooms and lecture theatres are equipped with ceiling cams and the built-in web-cam of a classroom PC for recording a Pancast (i.e. a video recording produced by Panopto).

Staff members who have teaching duties in Moodle courses can use Panopto easily, and all Moodle courses are easily link with Pancasts for viewing by students. The Panopto recorder software is pre-installed in the classroom PCs and can be downloaded from https://lecturecapture.hku.hk.

The pancasts are cleaned up in the summer with the Moodle courses and kept at a maximum of 2 years. To enable efficient use of storage resources, the pancasts are cleaned up in summer yearly (usually July). All pancasts older than 2 years by then will be deleted.

ITS has developed and will continue to enrich the support resources for LCS. You may browse resources that we provide to you: user guidestutorial videos and FAQs.
