New Lecture Capture System – Panopto to replace Tegrity

By , December 11, 2015 8:22 am



After a review of lecture capture options, UMKC has decided to replace the Tegrity lecture capture system with Panopto. Tegrity will be phased out during spring 2016, and existing Tegrity recordings made up until June 1, 2016 will be converted to the Panopto environment.

Panopto and Tegrity are very similar to use, with Panopto offering better support, fewer major software updates, and the ability to edit content after recording.

To ease the transition, instructors are encouraged to use Panopto beginning in the Spring 2016 semester.  Panopto will be installed on all ILE classroom computers, and will be available for all Spring 2016 Blackboard and Moodle courses soon.

More information about Panopto to come. In the meantime, if you have questions about Panopto, that aren’t answered by the website, please send them to
