Lecture Capture Services (LCS)


Lecture Capture Services (LCS) is supported by Panopto system. It is the centrally managed video capture solution adopted by HKU.

Panopto supports recording from iPhone, or audio and video input from Windows/Macintosh laptop synchronized with Microsoft PowerPoint presentation and desktop screen. Some classrooms and lecture theatres in the Centennial Campus are equipped with ceiling camera(s) and the built-in web-cam of the laptop in classroom is suitable for recording Pancast. The recorded Pancasts can be edited through a browser, shared to other users for viewing or giving comments, and output to other video formats e.g. MP4 or Podcast.  

Staff members who have teaching duties in Moodle courses can use Panopto, and all Moodle courses are provisioned with Panopto. The recorder software can be downloaded from http://lecturecapture.hku.hk. Panopto recordings (called “Pancasts”) can be easily linked to Moodle courses for viewing by students.

Students can record their presentations, share their presentation recordings with others and invite their teachers to review and give comments on their presentations.  They can apply for a Panopto student account via the online application form CF159 and install Panopto recorder software on their PC, laptop or iPhone to start recording their Pancasts.
