Panopto is moving to the cloud

Tuesday, March 17 by IMG

Posted in Panopto |
Comments Off

Currently, Panopto is hosted on servers here at  AU/OIT, but beginning next Monday, we will begin the process of copying all of Panopto to the Panopto cloud/hosted platform. Beginning Summer Semester 2015, all Panopto services will run in the hosted cloud platform. Here is the schedule for the move:

  • Week of March 23-27 – all content on the OIT Panopto servers will be copied to the Panopto hosted platform in the Amazon cloud. Users will NOT be affected in any way. You can still record, and all content will be viewable.
  • Week of May 11 – 15 – Several things will  happen:
    • All content not copied previously will be copied to the hosted site. That includes all material recorded between March and May.
    • The Canvas integration will be moved.
    • Recording to the current site will be turned off, but users will be able to record to the new site beginning May 12.
    • All content on the current site will still be viewable, but users will not be able to record to aces.panopto.auburn.edu.
    • Users WILL have to upgrade their recorder to use the new site (V. 4.8 for PCs, V. 4.7 for Macs).
    • Panopto will not be available on May 11, 2015, but users WILL be able to record off-line (then upload later).

This move is being done by Panopto at AU’s request. The engineer in charge of the move has accomplished this same task for other schools and is quite familiar with AU’s current site, including the Canvas integration. The move will change all integration settings necessary; faculty don’t need to worry about anything. Panopto, and the Canvas/Panopto integration will look and function just as it does now.

If you are at all worried about recordings being lost during the week of May 11 – 15: record offline. IMG can help you upload to the correct folder later.

If you have questions, please contact Dr. Kathy McClelland in IMG.

Introducing i>clicker and REEF Polling by i>clicker

Tuesday, February 17 by IMG

Posted in i>clicker |
Comments Off

i>clicker, one of Auburn’s student response system, also has a little-known secret: REEF Polling by i>clicker. REEF Polling is the new and improved i>clickerGO. With this solution, students may use their devices (ie: phone, tablet, laptop) instead of a physical clicker. Giving instructors the ability to offer more choices to students, they can have a mix of both devices and remotes in their i>clicker classroom. REEF Polling will send screen captures of in-class questions to the students’ device, creating a study guide for them to access at any time. REEF Polling is a cheaper alternative to the physical remote, but does require sufficient WiFi in the classroom. This interactive demonstration will show the features and functionality of REEF Polling alongside physical, i>clicker remotes.  BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) to this demonstration if you’d like to join in the fun!

When: Tuesday, February 24 from 10-11am
Where: 246 Foy Hall
RSVP: Amanda.gunnell@macmillan.com
Regrets:  If you cannot make the presentation, Mandy will be happy to meet with you at another time. Just email her with your available times and location.

Panopto/Canvas Issues

Tuesday, January 27 by IMG

Posted in Canvas Status, Panopto |
Comments Off

Thank you for your patience as we worked to resolve the Canvas/Panopto connection issues. The problems have been resolved; the integration has been restored. We have also enabled the new widget that displays the Panopto folder contents within Canvas:

  • In Firefox, Chrome, and Safari: You will now see the contents of the class Panopto folder loading in the Canvas window. You will not need to open Panopto in a new tab.
  • You will be able to record from this new display; instructions are available here: http://auburn.edu/img/apps/panopto/
  • If you have created a drop box in your Panopto folder for students to record to: they will be able to record from the new display. Instructions for students are available here: http://auburn.edu/img/apps/canvas/students/index.html
  • Updating the Panopto Recorder on your machine is recommended but not mandatory.
  • If you need to copy content from old folders: You will need to log in to Panopto to do that – you can’t do it through this new display. If you don’t see the folder you need when you log in, contact IMG.

However, if you are using Internet Explorer: You will not see the new display of the folder contents in the Canvas window. You will still have to click to open Panopto in a new tab. This is a bug that Panopto knows about. Everything will work as it did.

Please don’t hesitate to contact IMG with any questions or problems.


We’re sorry to report that the connection between Canvas and Panopto is again down. I have contacted Panopto support.

For now: if you need to record a class, log into the Recorder directly and record to any folder. We’ll help you move files later.

Those of you who have recordings scheduled on remote recorders: you’re fine. That process is not affected.

I apologize for these outages; please know we are doing all we can to fix the problems.


The engineer has figured out the problem between Canvas and Panopto, but we need to consult with Instructure tomorrow to fix it.

In the meantime, we have restored the old version of the integration and you are free to record your classes using the Panopto link in Canvas now. But, it will look like the old integration: You’ll have to click to open Panopto in a new tab, no matter what browser you use.

If you have recorded classes to other folders in Panopto: please contact IMG tomorrow and we’ll help you move them.

Thank you for your patience; we will get the issue addressed so that we can use the new method of displaying the Panopto folder in Canvas.

Lockdown Browser and Languages

Monday, January 05 by IMG

Posted in Canvas, Respondus |
Comments Off

We recently recieved a question regarding the Lockdown Browser and non-English keyboards. I contacted Respondus and this is their workaround:

Switching between different keyboards such as English and Russian, is feasible in LockDown Browser. However, for Windows systems the students may need to change the modifier keys as certain key combinations are blocked for security reasons.

Prior to starting LockDown Browser, students can go to Windows 7->Control Panel->Region and Language->Keyboards and Languages->”Change Keyboards…”->Advanced Key Settings->”Change Key Sequence” to change to a key sequence that is not blocked. (Windows 8/8.1 settings may be slightly different from Windows 7/Vista.)

For LockDown Browser-Mac, students can go to System Preferences->Keyboard->Shortcuts->Input Sources.

We suggest the instructor provide the students with a LockDown Browser-required practice quiz so students can test the input language switching prior to taking an exam. Ideally, we suggest two copies of the practice quiz, one without and one with the LockDown Browser requirement so students can check the settings with Internet Explorer first followed by LockDown Browser. (LockDown Browser uses the same system components and settings, which also makes up IE on Windows.)
