Panopto: A New Lecture Capture Tool Has Arrived!

We are excited to announce that UTRGV is moving to Panopto as the new supported lecture capture solution. Panopto provides greater functionality for our faculty and students and introduces many new features.

With Panopto, you can:

  • Easily record videos on Windows, Mac, and iOS.
  • Create interactive video quizzes and sync grades with Blackboard.
  • Create student video submission assignments.
  • Upload existing video and audio files.
  • Easily embed videos within Blackboard.
  • Import auto-generated captions.

Why Panopto?

While Tegrity has been a critical tool for the University’s academic mission and is used extensively throughout all of the colleges and schools, Tegrity has announced the end of their services. A pilot was conducted with UTRGV faculty to explore Panopto as a viable alternative. It was concluded that Panopto’s tools, features, and usability are much more enhanced. As a result, Tegrity will be replaced with Panopto, which will meet the needs of the University’s academic community.
