Q. I want to set my phone to record my whole class. How much phone space do I need? How much battery life do I need? How much time can I anticipate the upload to take?
A. The storage required is 4mb/minute (240mb/hour). To record an entire class, plug your device in while you record. An entire class session may take 10-20 minutes to completely upload. If you close the app, the video will continue to upload in the background. Please contact the ITS Help Desk if you are unable to completely upload videos from your mobile device.
Q. Can I transfer Panopto files from my phone to my computer and have my computer be uploading while I’m doing other things? What is the best way to do this?
A. iPhone users can copy the video to their computer using iTunes. Android users can copy the video from storage by mounting the storage as a drive. Contact the Help Desk for assistance.
Q. Can a student continue to edit a Panopto file after they’ve uploaded it?
A. Students can continue to edit their videos in the assignments folder. In Settings, instructors can close the assignment folder. This will prevent students from accessing and adding content to the assignment folder. The instructor will still have access.
