The Media Geeks would like you to take a few minutes to watch our video about how using Panopto can help students get better grades and improve study habits (So the students say!) http://youtu.be/BmXrUz9cp7o
And if that's not enough to convince you to at least give it a try, here is a recent quote from a professor here at VWCC (name withheld to protect the innocent):
Here is a testimonial from someone who thinks that technology will be the downfall of civilization . . . I have used Panopto to keep from getting behind in my MWF lectures in XXXX when we are out for snow days. I have been taping my class lecture on Thursday if there is snow in the forecast and then posting it for my Friday classes when we miss, so am able to keep all my classes on the same schedule and not get too far behind in the MWF sections.
So, I have to admit, that yes, this technology is very useful and that even I can figure out how to use it if I try.
