How do I view an Abercast Panopto lecture recording?

Most of the lectures which have been recorded can be viewed via the relevant course on AberLearn Blackboard:

  • Login to AberLearn Blackboard using your AU username and password.
  • Go to the relevant AberLearn Blackboard module listed under My Modules.
  • Click on the section which includes the recordings (e.g. Content). Your tutor will be able to tell you where the recording is.
  • Click on the link to the lecture you would like to see. An AberCast icon appears next to each recording:

  • The recording will open in a new window.
  • If you are prompted for your username and password, use the dropdown menu to select Sign in with Aberlearn Blackboard.

 

  • Depending on the set-up of your module, you may also be able to view all available lecture recordings for that module by going to Tools in the yellow course menu and clicking on Panopto Content.

 

The software to view recordings has been installed on all public service computers. If you would like to view recordings on your personal computer, you need to install Silverlight software. You can download Silverlight from Microsoft’s website: http://www.microsoft.com/silverlight/ .
