Video Assignment Submissions

Panopto, LearnJCU's video platform, supports video creation and video submissions for students.

Panopto video assignment folders, set up by educators in advance, are dedicated spaces where students (you) can create, edit, and submit videos for their subject assignments.

Watch the video demonstration below to see where you can find your Panopto video assignment folder.

Please note: If you cannot find the video assignment folder for your subject, reach out to your Subject Coordinator (or Lecturer).

Recording your presentation with Panopto

How to use Panopto Capture (Browser-based recording)

Things to know 

  • The Create tool is available to students who have a Panopto video assignment folder activated (by educators) in one of their subjects.
  • You're not limited to just one recording—you can make as many as you want! Feel free to try a test recording, once you've finished hit Redo to start again, or, Record New to make an additional recording.
  • Don't leave the recording until the last minute, technical issues can occur and it's best to have time on your side.
  • Help is available at the top-right of the Panopto Dashboard.
  • Mac users will need to enable screen recording in System Preferences.

Recording your presentation with other tools

If preferred, you can use other tools to record:

However, if you use a different tool you are required to upload the exported file (usually MP4 or Mov) to Panopto.

Editing videos

Panopto provides basic editing functions, if you require something more advanced you can try Clip Champ, a free Microsoft program.
