Monash University Selects Panopto for its Video Content Management and Lecture Capture Platform

SYDNEY, Feb. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

Panopto, a leading video platform for higher education ( ), today announced it has been 
selected by Monash University, a prestigious "Group of Eight" leading research 
institution, as its campus-wide solution for video content management ( ), recording, and live streaming.

With Panopto, faculty and staff at Monash University will be able to securely 
organize and manage the institution's extensive library of video files. In 
addition, Panopto will enable the university to record and share lectures, 
insert quizzes and captions in course videos, accept student assignment 
submissions in video format, live stream on-campus events, and record internal 
university communications and training activities.

Monash University will host Panopto locally with AARNet, and plans to integrate 
Panopto with Moodle, the university's learning management system, to provide a 
more complete, seamless solution for academic video to both staff and students.

"Many of our academics regularly use video to deliver complex content more 
efficiently and with a personalised approach," said Professor Kris Ryan, 
Academic Director at Monash University. "In selecting Panopto, we chose a video 
platform that supports more active learning experiences for our students, while 
also giving our academics more control over the creation and distribution of 
video resources." 

Mr Peter Wagstaff, Senior Lecturer within Monash Business School was part of 
both the steering committee and reference group that would select Panopto to 
serve as Monash's new video platform. "Video should be as easy to produce as 
text, and in that regard, Panopto is a huge step forward," said Mr Wagstaff. 
"As an instructor I create hundreds of videos a year. Panopto makes these 
videos much easier to create, as well as to search and manage from within 

"Video technology continues to transform the learning experience at not only 
universities across Australia and New Zealand, but across the world," said Ravi 
Khakhar, General Manager, Panopto ANZ. "We're excited to be a part of how 
Monash prepares its students for success."

Monash University's adoption of Panopto continues a growing trend in Australia 
and New Zealand of academic institutions moving to a complete online platform 
to capture, manage and access video content. Panopto customers in the region 
also include the Victoria University of Wellington, Ara Institute of 
Canterbury, Mater Education, Barker College, Carnegie Mellon University
