Victoria University of Wellington Adopts Panopto as Its Video Content Management and Virtual Collaboration Platform

WELLINGTON, New Zealand, Aug. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Panopto, a leading video platform for higher education 
(https://www.panopto.com/ ), today announced that it has been selected by 
Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand to provide a comprehensive 
campus-wide video platform for academics and students to create, view and 
collaborate on educational videos.

Key to Victoria's decision was Panopto's ability to integrate seamlessly with 
the institution's learning management systems (LMS), BlackBoard, and the ease 
at which Panopto could be quickly scaled up for campus-wide implementation. As 
the focus of video at Victoria has evolved from standard lecture capture to 
supporting more interactive and blended learning-based educational experiences, 
Panopto's ability to embed recordings within online courses without having to 
change the design of the course was a significant benefit. Victoria also found 
Panopto to be more resilient in case of an emergency or disruption, and more 
flexible in allowing for video to be securely used as part of student 
assignments. 

"Our decision to choose Panopto was based on our desire to provide anytime, 
anywhere, any-capability video support for everyone at our university," said 
Jonathan Flutey, Learning and Research Technology Manager at Victoria 
University of Wellington.  "With Panopto, our faculty can now easily record and 
share lectures from any location, collect student video assignments, and track 
student comprehension using in-video quizzing."

"Working with institutions around the globe, we've seen the tremendous value 
that video can provide to university students, faculty, and staff," said Ravi 
Khakhar, General Manager, Panopto ANZ. "We're looking forward to being a part 
of how Victoria University continues to evolve and improve student learning 
experiences."

In choosing the Panopto video platform, Victoria is the latest in a growing 
number of Panopto customers in the Australia and New Zealand market. Other 
customers in the region include the Ara Institute of Canterbury, Mater 
Education, Barker College, Carnegie Mellon University Australia, Sydney 
Children's Hospitals Network, the Tasmanian Department of Education, the 
University of Waikato, and Charles Sturt University.
