More than a quarter million hours — that’s how much time students at the University of Arizona collectively spent watching recorded lectures, flipped classroom presentations, and other academic video just in the last year.
But it wasn’t always this way. In fact, just a short time ago, the University of Arizona was like many other institutions when it came to supporting lecture capture and academic video — different departments experimenting with different solutions to support different objectives, and all still looking for a better way to support and engage their students.
Recognizing both the rising interest from faculty, as well as the potential value for students, Arizona’s Office of the CIO sought to find a better solution for taking lecture recording campus-wide. The team soon found Panopto — a flexible video platform that made it possible to record, stream, and share video with ease, in a software-based solution that was far easier to manage and far more affordable than the old web of departmental deployments.
With Panopto integrated into the university’s multiple LMSs, rolled out to the more than 300 classrooms across campus, and available to all faculty and students to install on their computers, the University of Arizona has harnessed the full potential of video as a tool for learning — creating an essential resource and invaluable study aid that both students and faculty have quickly come to rely on in numbers.
