This semester FLIE are running weekly face-to-face drop-ins in FG04 to support staff with some of the digital tools you have access to for teaching and learning. We’re focusing on a different theme each week – so bring along your questions in person to FG04 on the following days and times, and we might even make you a tea or coffee!
Using Panopto for lecture recording
Would you like some help with using Panopto for recording? are you confused by which camera or microphone you should choose? On Wednesday 9th November 12.00-13.30 we’ll be focusing on Panopto and giving you the opportunity to come and practice in the room with an LT on hand.
