Lecture Capture System Panopto Upgrade on July 20 Monday 8:30pm - July 21 Tuesday 6am AND Moodle Upgrade on July 26 Sunday 6am to 6:30pm

Dear Colleagues and Students,

(1) The Lecture Capture Service (LCS) powered by the Panopto system supports our teachers and students to do video recording and editing, and viewing through Moodle courses.

Panopto system upgrade to the latest version 4.9 will be carried out during the following period where all access to the Panopto service will be suspended.  After July 21 6am, teachers can install or upgrade the new client Panopto Recorder v4.9 software in their PCs for Panopto recording. (Click here to see instructions.)

Date: July 20, 2015 (Monday)
Time: 8:30 PM to 6:00 AM

Please access LCS after 6:00am on July 21.

After the successful upgrade, LCS will resume service using the new Panopto v4.9 system.  The new Panopto Recorder v4.9 software will also be upgraded in all central classrooms.

Please be noted that the existing Panopto Recorder v4.6 will no longer be supported by the Panopto v4.9 system. If you have installed the Panopto Recorder in your own machine before, you have to install a new Panopto 4.9 Recorder in order to make recordings after July 21 6am. (Click here for more information)

If you would like to know more about the new enhancements of Panopto v4.9 system, please read its release note here.

(2) Moodle Learning Management System upgrade from version 2.6.3 to 2.8.6 on July 26 (Sunday) from 6am-6:30pm. Access to it will be suspended.

The new features and improvements of Moodle 2.8.6 are described in the release notes (https://docs.moodle.org/dev/Moodle_2.8.6_release_notes).
