1. What do I need to view recorded class lectures?

  • A computer or mobile device with an internet connection.


2. How can I access class recordings?

Log in to WISE and select the course that contains class recordings. Select Panopto from the Course Tools list. If the Panopto service does not launch automatically, click the link that says "If Panopto does not automatically launch..." You may need to click on warnings to allow popups. Panopto will automatically display the recordings page that matches the WISE course page. You can find your other Panopto recordings using the Browse dropdown list.


3. Can I make lectures of my own?

Yes. If you need to make recording(s) for a class, your instructor can activate the student recording option. There is a joinable WISE site called Practice Recordings that you can use to prepare for presentations, self assessment, etc. The library recording room in the Hatfield Library (see the Circulation Desk) is set up with computer, camera and microphone for easy recording.


4. What formats are available?

There are several formats available within Panopto for streaming and downloading. Each instructor decides which formats to enable for their courses based on their own comfort level and the nature of their content.
