With Panopto, anyone with a computer can capture expert knowledge - presentations, meetings, brainstorming sessions, product demonstrations, lectures, or visual communication too rich for email – in real time, as it’s delivered. Simple enough to learn in seconds, Panopto’s powerful capture and broadcast tools let you use anything from consumer webcams and built-in microphones to professional-grade cameras to produce content that’s published online, chaptered, searchable, and delivered to your audience seconds after you stop recording. Combined with Panopto Unison, an easy, flexible, and scalable system for uploading, managing, and publishing multimedia from any source using only your web browser, Panopto gives your audience a single destination for rich information. The days of the limited and expensive capture studio and the slow, tedious production process are over – Panopto delivers knowledge from experts to audience with one simple platform, leaving the pain and cost of yesterday’s technologies behind.
During this class you will be uploading your own content into one of your courses and learning strategies to organize your content in an online environment.

1. Team conversations
2. Coaching conversations
3. Delegation conversations
4. Confrontation conversations
During class, you will:
-Identify practices that are holding you back from open and meaningful conversations.
-Gain the capacity to connect with your colleagues and customers at a deeper level.
