Equipment and on-campus recording

If possible, we recommend that you use an external webcam and microphone/headset since the sound and picture quality tends to be better.

Please note that if you are using an external webcam or microphone/headset for your recording, it must be USB-based (preferably from recognized brands: Logitech, Jabra, etc.) before it is compatible with Panopto. Individual phone and Bluetooth headset might work, but that's not something we can guarantee.
If you don’t’ have external equipment, you can use you built-in microphone and webcam.

If you do not have the opportunity to sit in your office or at home and record, we offer different solutions. CBS has several recording rooms across campus where you can record spoken PowerPoint, screen recording or podcast. If you want to use one of the rooms, please contact the relevant contact person listed below. The recording rooms can be found here:

Panopto Mobile APP

Use the Panopto Mobile APP for simple recordings "on-the-go". You can use it to present a location or a specific object. You can also use it to provide students with collective feedback throughout the semester.

Spoken PowerPoint

You can do a spoken PowerPoint with or without camera. This means that you can talk and be seen while moving through your slides.

Annotation on iPad

You are not bound to record with Panopto. You can record with any program and device, and upload an MP4 file to Panopto. The video shows a screen recording with annotation made on an Ipad.

Book trailer

You can introduce curriculum texts that the students should read. You can motivate and explain why they are important and talk about which points are particularly important. You can also talk about in what context the text is used in relation to the course, and if it is important for further work and understanding.

Annotation in PowerPoint

This feature is useful if you want to annotate on slides. You can annotate on blank slides or on top of pre-filled slides, and explain how to make a calculation, elaborate on a model or draw attention to words or phrases in your presentation.

Talking Heads & Screen

Mix different recording formats. Here we have mixed a talking head with screen recording, allowing you to present YouTube videos, webpages or quizzes.

Discussions in Panopto

Together with a colleague, you can record a conversation video where you discuss or elaborate on a special topic. Or you can interview each other about a relevant topic in relation to the syllabus or make a “good cop, bad cop” on a theory or model.
