July 1, 2014

Panopto's video capture and management software has been selected by University of Washington (UW) for campus-wide deployment, and by the Washington State Board of Community and Technical Colleges (SBCTC) for statewide deployment across 33 campuses, the Company reported in its release.

"The University of Washington is committed to providing our students with exceptional learning opportunities that increasingly involve cutting-edge information technology," said Tom Lewis, director of academic and collaborative applications at University of Washington. "After an extensive needs assessment and pilot in a wide variety of UW classes, Panopto emerged as the clear choice for our students and faculty."

Panopto said that UW and SBCTC, with 43,000 and nearly 400,000 students, respectively, will use its video platform to flip their classrooms, record lectures, create faculty training, live stream campus events, and more.

"Video-enhanced learning is a key aspect of SBCTC's Strategic Technology Plan, which provides a framework for how our system will deploy 21st-century technologies to support student success," said Mark Jenkins, director of eLearning and open education at the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges. "With Panopto, students across Washington can personalize their learning experience with anywhere, anytime access to lecture recordings and will be able to participate more actively in the learning process through recorded assignments and presentations."

Panopto creates software that enables enterprises and academic institutions to record, broadcast, search and share all of their video content and presentations.
