Panopto is the cloud-based video management platform used at Mitchell Hamline. Panopto is primarily used to record and store video content such as lectures, tutorials, video-assignments, screen recording or other video-based artifacts. Zoom recordings are also stored in Panopto. Panopto is integrated with Canvas and Zoom and allows for easy creation, storage, sharing, embedding and integration of videos used in courses or elsewhere.
Zoom is the video conferencing software adopted by Mitchell Hamline. All Mitchell Hamline students, faculty, and staff have access to a Zoom Pro license, which allows for unlimited meetings without a time limit. Zoom is seamlessly integrated with Canvas and Panopto. Zoom may be used directly within Canvas courses, or can be used external to courses for other meeting needs.

COVID-19 restrictions on use of the studio
The studio is only reservable on Wednesdays and Thursdays between the hours of 9 am and 5 pm.
Only two individuals, one presenter and one ATS technician, may be in the studio at a time during set up for the video shoot. Both individuals are required to wear face covering and maintain social distancing to the best of their ability until filming begins. Once filming has begun, the presenter may remove their face covering for the duration of filming. The technician will also leave the studio once filming has begun, but can return at the presenter’s request if there any technical issues.
Academic Technology Services will review each studio reservation request individually to make sure that the proposed content is safe and appropriate to produce in our studio. In the event that the request does not meet one or both of those requirements, we will do our best to propose alternate solutions for producing the proposed content.
Academic Technology Services will continue to update these policies moving forward, but they are currently in place until further notice. Thank you!
We provide equipment and assistance to staff and faculty to help create better content for courses, lectures and programs. We help you use tools such as Zoom and Panopto to create new course content from your home or office.
- Contact your assigned Acadmic Technology Services staff member for a training on the tools available to you. If you do not know who your assigned staff member is, contact ID@mitchellhamline.edu.
Classroom technologies and HyFlex
Recent upgrades to many of our classrooms help to both improve in-person teaching and better facilitate HyFlex learning. These upgrades include dual cameras and ceiling microphones that allow for audio and video streaming of both the professor and the students attending in-person. This also includes dual monitors for the instructor’s computer which allow for professors and presenters to have a full monitor dedicated to those attending remotely. Beyond that, Academic Technology Services is continuing to experiment with additional HyFlex technology as well as exploring new ways of incorporating accessibility in to Mitchell Hamline’s teaching spaces.
