Student drop box is a simple way to enable your students to record a video using lecture recording (Panopto). This might be used for an assignment where students record presentations outside of class, with powerpoint, for a module’s formative or summative assessment.
Drop box is a special folder that you create within your Course Resources Panopto folder. By default anything recorded by a student in there is only visible to the student and the tutors on the module.
You can change the settings to allow any video recorded in a drop box to be visible to everyone enrolled on the module. This is useful for peer activities, like peer reviews.
Once you’ve created a drop box, students will be able to download the Panopto recorder onto their computer and after they have logged in they can see a list of modules that have drop boxes on them. They simply choose your module’s drop box and record their video.
