[Resolved] We are making improvements to Panopto and Listen Again

Filed under: Listen Again, [Resolved], [Scheduled], [Service Alert] — Benjamin Steeples @ 11:55 am

Planned work

Listen Again ( and Panopto ( will be unavailable on Thursday 23 July and Friday 24 July so that we can upgrade to the latest version of Panopto. We anticipate the work will take two days to complete, but we’ll update you here as soon as it’s done.

The new version of Panopto brings several useful features, including:

  • Machine transcription of new recordings;
  • In-browser video recording;
  • Recycle bin to recover deleted recordings;
  • Improved analytics.

We are sorry that you will be unable to access the above services during this time. Any teaching events taking place in Zoom during this period will be imported into Listen Again and Panopto once they are back up and running.

If you have any questions about this work please email
