How do I create a Panopto Assignment folder for a module? (Staff)

Note: Instructors can view all recordings made by all students in the Assignment folder. However, each student can only see recordings they have made personally.

Assignment folders for modules may be created either through Blackboard, or through Panopto.

To create an Assignment folder through Blackboard

 Go to the module in Blackboard and select:

  • Tools, Panopto Content:

  • Click on Settings

  • Click on Create Assignment Folder and close the window.

 

Rename the Assignment folder

Rename the folder so that Assignments is at the start of the folder name. Note: Sub-folders – including assignment folders may take a few seconds to load.

  •  Go into the Assignments folder

  •  Select Settings

  • Select Edit

 

  • Re-name the folder, i.e., "Assignments-module code-module name", press Save and close the window

 

An Assignments folder is now visible in the Tools, Panopto Content area of the Blackboard module.

Note: Video files should be moved out of the assignments folder after an assignments due date. Otherwise it will continue to be possible to delete or edit recordings after a deadline. See faq 988 for how to move a recording from one Panopto folder to another.
