Video Support

The Center for Academic Excellence (CAE) consultants have experience using the following video/lecture/desktop capture and sharing tools in instructional settings:


Panopto is primarily a lecture capture tool, used to record physical class meetings or lectures, various video and audio inputs, presentation materials, and to share the resulting aggregated video with students in a very secure environment. It is integrated in AsuLearn (just add the Panopto block). It is also available via single-sign-on.


Camtasia is primarily used to record your computer's desktop, with a voice-over. Many faculty use it to prepare an online lecture (PowerPoint with voice-over). It outputs an MP4 video that can then be shared via your Mountaineer Apps YouTube channel or Google Drive folder. It is available to faculty through the Appalachian Software Center.


Screencast-o-matic is available for free. It provides a relatively easy, entry-level way for users to record their desktop or webcam, upload the recording to their Mountaineer Apps YouTube account, and share the link in AsULearn or other environments.

Office Mix

Office Mix is availabe for free. It integrates well with PowerPoint.


Every user at Appalachian has a YouTube channel associated with their Mountaineer Apps account. This service is used to share video content created in other applications such as those listed above, and provides a YouTube link that may be placed in AsULearn or other environments.
