The University of Newcastle selected Panopto, a leading video platform for higher education, to support interactive teaching and learning campus-wide.

With Panopto, teaching staff will be able to manage, live stream, record, and share video in an easy-to-use integrated video platform. Panopto also integrates with the Blackboard learning management system used by the University. AARNet will provide local hosting of the platform on its ultra-high-speed network, along with technical support and other services.

“We’re very pleased with the outcome of our collaboration with the University of Newcastle. By leveraging their AARNet network connection we have deployed an AARNet-hosted Panopto solution to provide the best possible teaching and learning experience to students,” says Alex Grande, Head of Product Management, AARNet. “AARNet focuses on partnering with best of breed global companies like Panopto to make it easier for our customers to deploy services that enable innovation in teaching, learning and research.”

“Worldwide, video is helping instructors share information and expertise, while helping students customise their learning experiences,” said Ravi Khakhar, General Manager, Panopto ANZ. “Partnering with AARNet means that we can offer the best possible performance and service to the University of Newcastle, and all education and research organisations in Australia.”

Well established in the United States, Europe, and Asia, Panopto uptake is growing in Australia and New Zealand. The University of Newcastle joins a number of other universities and organisations in the region using the platform to improve the education experience for students, including Monash University, Charles Sturt University, Western Sydney University, University of South Australia, University of Waikato, the Tasmanian Department of Education, Mater Education, Carnegie Mellon University Australia and Sydney Children’s Hospitals Network.
