Adding Panopto Video Content to UB Learns

The Panopto integration provides the tools to add and manage Panopto video files from inside UB Learns course sites. Video files and classroom lecture recordings added to UB Learns course sites allow students to watch on any computer, laptop or mobile device.

Video Tutorial

  1. Navigate to a content area (e.g., Course Documents or Assignments)
  2. Highlight Build Content and select Panopto Video Embed
  3. Choose the folder with the video(s) you want
  4. Select one or more videos to insert and click Insert Video

Common Questions

Some of my students report they can’t view the course videos

Have them try the strategies below to correct the problem. If they continue to have trouble, encourage them to request help from UBIT.

  1. Try viewing the videos from a different web browser.
    Try the Firefox Browser (Download Firefox).
  2. Turn off pop-up blockers on the web browser.
  3. Make sure you have 3rd-party cookies enabled on your default web browser. If you are using Safari on a Mac, enable cross-site tracking.

Why are people getting a "Request Access for Video" error?

Either change the sharing setting inside Panopto to Anyone at your organization with the link or use the Panopto Video Embed tool. Viewers should enable third-party cookies in their browser (see above).

Why don't I see the Panopto Content link?

Provision your course (see Step 1 above) before you can use Panopto video with your course.  

Why didn't my grades import into the Grade Center?

After students answer the final question by clicking Finish they must also click Continue in order for the grades to be imported.
