QuickVideo Workshop

This one hour session will give you a quick overview and demonstration of Panopto software within the specific context of creating training videos and videos for online learning. This system has been used around the University and is particularly suitable for creating large amounts of short professional  videos for online courses, for VLE work or for training material.

To help staff members who may be new to this area, a studio-based mobile unit containing all the necessary AV technology, such as cameras and microphones, has been installed in the Media Production studio at IT Services, 13 Banbury Road. The device has been branded ‘QuickVideo’. Recording videos is easy - just bring a set of PowerPoint slides. The presenter can either appear alongside the PowerPoint or be overlayed/chromakeyed into the video in ‘weather presenter’ mode. This style of videos is familiar from online courses (MOOCs) or Molly (LinkedIn Learning) but it can be used to record videos for any purpose including online courses, student support, staff training, promotion, projects reports, etc.

It is expected that you are already familiar with the Panopto software.

  • What is the QuickVideo
  • What kinds of videos can be made
  • Examples from around the University 
  • How to prepare materials to use with Panopto and QuickVideo
  • Overview of the key features and how to use them
