Panopto: Submit A Video for Blackboard Assignments


This document explains how to submit a Panopto video assignment in Blackboard.

1. Submitting a Panopto Video Assignment

1.1.  If you have not yet recorded or uploaded your video to your personal Panopto folder (My Folder), please do so before proceeding. You can do this by opening the assignment and selecting the Panopto video library from within the assignment instructions to open your Panopto folder in a new tab (Fig. 1). This link will also create a personal folder for you if you don't already have one. From this folder, you can upload or create the video that you will use for the assignment. To learn more about how to record or upload video to your Panopto folder, see

Assignment information window that describes the instructions for submitting an assignment.
