Recording Software

Camtasia by TechSmith

Camtasia is a software for creating video tutorials and presentations and has a direct recording plug-in to Microsoft PowerPoint. The screen area to be recorded can be chosen freely and audio or other multimedia recordings may be recorded at the same time.

The Camtasia software allows audio recording while screen-capturing is in progress, so the presenter can capture live narration during a demonstration or presentation. It also supports dubbing in other audio tracks or voiceover during post-capture editing.

Panopto (with Canvas)

Whether it’s a lecture, flipped class or student assignment, Panopto allows users to capture any video feed including the desktop screen. Panopto’s recording software automatically configures itself for easy setup and has the ability to stream live webcasts through its software. Yale-NUS integrates Panopto with Canvas, so that you could use the platform seamlessly with your module. Students could use Panopto within their Canvas module too, to upload their media projects without an external service.

Blue Orange Lecture Capture

Available in selected classrooms at Yale-NUS, Blue Orange has the ability to record the presenter, the projection output from your laptop and can be further extended to include another source e.g. a visualiser. Combining all screens provide a realistic view in the recording, just like attending an in-class session.

Lecture Recording

Yale-NUS adopts the two platforms for media streaming:

  • Blue Orange Lecture Capture
  • Panopto

Together with the Media & Classroom Technology (MCT) team, lecture recordings are readily available in Yale-NUS College. These platforms are integrated with Yale-NUS’ Canvas Learning Management System (LMS) and the published videos can be easily accessed within the designated module.
