The CCI offers a variety of design services to help you with your slide presentation, video presentation, poster design, infographic, and lecture capture projects. CCI staff can assist with PowerPoint, Photoshop, Panopto, Audacity, Camtasia, and more. If you have a design question or would like to schedule a one-on-one appointment, contact us by emailing


Panopto is a video-capturing platform that allows you quickly and easily to create videos, to capture lectures, and to record events. This tool is available to all faculty and staff and can be accessed through your Moodle course. Teaching-faculty that don’t yet have a Moodle course may request a course through BearPAWS. Staff and non-teaching-faculty may request a Moodle course by emailing

Once you have a Moodle course, you may get started with Panopto by downloading the following instructions for you and your students.

Although you will normally access Panopto through Moodle, you may, when necessary, go directly to our Panopto site. SUNY Potsdam Panopto Policies can be found on the CTS website.



Filming Service

Are you looking to “Flip Your Classroom”? Do you need to create instructional videos? CCI staff can record your next class lecture, presentation, or event. We give video-recording priority to course-video projects; however, the CCI can also assist campus departments and organizations with event, training, and marketing video projects. For more information on how the CCI can help you with you video project, schedule a meeting with the Media Design Consultant.

Editing Service

If you have recorded a video and need assistance with editing the video or audio, schedule a meeting with the Media Design Consultant. In addition to basic editing help, the Media Design Consultant can help you design or redesign your video content and introduce you to various techniques to keep your videos focused and your students engaged. If you are currently using YouTube videos posted by other creators, the Media Design Consultant can demonstrate how Panopto can “edit” them to only show specific sections.

Video Training

If you are looking to learn Camtasia, Panopto, or other video or audio editing tools, the Media Design Consultant at the CCI is happy to meet with you. Contact the CCI to schedule a meeting and/or watch for posted CCI events.
