Panopto Announcement for Softchalk Users
Information Services just sent out this email to Softchalk users here at DePaul:
"As you may be aware, there is a project in progress to migrate from Ooyala to a new streaming media and video system called Panopto. Panopto is a video streaming and video content management software that is fully integrated with D2L and will allow you and your students to upload and manage video content files for classes directly within D2L. The self-service availability with Panopto’s D2L integration will streamline the process for uploading content for the courses you teach.
If you have video content in your SoftChalk module and these modules exist in SoftChalk Cloud (e.g. they are not zipped up and unpacked in D2L), you will need to contact FITS@depaul.edu by September 1, 2016 to coordinate migration of your content. Fits staff will work with you to migrate the content into a space within Panopto and work with you to set the video permissions so your audiences can view them. Please note that a list of video titles will be needed in order to migrate the content.
On September 30th 2016, the existing streaming media systems will be retired and will no longer be accessible. All necessary content must be migrated into Panopto prior to this date.
If you have any questions about using Panopto in your class or if you want to provide students with the ability to upload video content, please contact FITS@depaul.edu for assistance."
