Panopto announced the latest update to its enterprise video platform. The release continues Panopto’s commitment to making video accessible anywhere through integrations with learning management systems and other online services.
Canvas Gradebook integration
This release extends Panopto’s native integration with Instructure’s Canvas LMS. Through this update, Canvas customers can integrate Panopto’s video quizzes into their LMS as assignments, and access quiz results directly from within the LMS gradebook. This enables instructors to test comprehension and reinforce key concepts in their recorded lectures and flipped classroom videos, and then track student progress within the gradebook. Students can also see their Panopto quiz results from within Canvas.
“Interactive video quizzing helps students retain information by applying concepts that they’ve just learned,” said Eric Burns, co-founder and CEO of Panopto. “Now, with Canvas gradebook integration, teachers can use a familiar interface and their existing pedagogy to make video part of their active learning environment.”
Today’s release also provides video creators and administrators with a new way of organizing and sharing their media content. Playlists enable customers to group videos into related collections regardless of where the videos are located in the VCMS. Playlists can then be shared directly from within Panopto, or embedded into learning management systems (LMS), content management systems (CMS), CRM systems, enterprise social feeds, and other web portals. The updates in this release will be available to existing Panopto customers at no additional cost.
In June, Panopto had announced that it has been selected as one of Washington’s 100 Best Companies to Work For in an annual ranking compiled by Seattle Business magazine. Panopto was highlighted as an organization that sets the standard for leadership, great benefits, flexible work environments, innovative professional development, and employee satisfaction. The company was also named to the list in 2015.
To be considered for the 100 Best Companies list, a third-party research firm compiled anonymous employee satisfaction surveys and presented the results to a panel of judges, who then individually selected the final 100 honorees.
