Panopto provides lecture capture, which is the process whereby your lecture is recorded, stored, and made available through a web interface (only to your students). There are multiple streams that can be recorded: your voice, a computer screen, a camera in the room, indexing from a Powerpoint presentation you used. All of these streams of data are channeled through a single interface for your students. There are even more uses for, and features to, the system, but capture is foremost.
