Use Video to engage your students.


There are a range of options for including video in your content. Victoria University’s recording system is called Echo360 Active Learning Platform (ALP).

Echo360 ALP Lecture Capture is enabled at VU campuses and will record all lectures (unless you opt out) as video or audio files. 

Echo360 ALP Personal Capture allows staff to record or live stream lectures and create short videos on the desktop to upload and distribute to students seamlessly via VU Collaborate.

Video Note is an integrated tool accessible within VU Collaborate which allows staff to quickly and easily record video footage on their desktop. This can be embedded in content in VU Collaborate or attached to feedback on assessment.

Panopto is the new platform for staff and students at VU to create, share, manage and edit videos of various formats.  You can record your monitor (a screencast), take video or do a webcast of an event in a room that is set up for it.  You can then take any of those videos and share them with others in and outside of VU.  You can also edit them in Panopto first or add some shorter videos together to create one large one.  There are also other tools such as adding a website or quiz into a video to enhance interactivity, and student/viewer tools such as dicussions and bookmarks.

This Video section also contains instructional guides for recording, uploading, editing and embedding other video media into VU Collaborate.
