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.
To use the Panopto content in UB Learns you must provision your course with the Panopto Course Tool Application link.
The Panopto Course Tool Application link provides students permission to access all the videos in your Panopto course folder and allows all course instructors to manage (ex: upload, delete, edit etc) video files. The folder updates automatically as files are added in Panopto.
Note: We recommend that you have your students click on this Panopto tool link to ensure they are added to the course viewer group and have permission to view the recordings.
If you want to time release the videos in your course, use the availability settings in Panopto to hide individual recordings or an entire folder.
Students enrolled in your course should automatically have permission to access content in the Panopto course folder that’s created when you configure the course for Panopto. To share videos from any other Panopto folder, such as a sub folder under your My Folder, update the Share settings to include the current course viewer and creator groups.
Alternately, you can open your videos up to anyone at UB by choosing choosing Your Organization (Anyone at your org who has the link)
Recordings with this access level are unlisted, meaning the session won't be discoverable by anyone browsing the site; they can only be accessed by having the direct link and a valid UBIT login.
You can add quiz questions to a Panopto video at any point during the presentation. If you create an assessment in UB Learns, the results can be sent to the UB Learns Grade Center. This is a two step process.
1. Go to the Content Area (example: Assignments, Course Documents, etc.) in your UB Learns course
2. Click Assessments
3. Click Panopto Quiz tool
4. Click on the name of the quiz item you just created in UB Learns
5. The LTI will open, select the Panopto video that has your quiz questions and click Insert
6. The video will open and begin to play.
To close the video and return to the course, click on the name of the Content Area near the top left-hand corner of the screen (a.k.a. the breadcrumbs)
Note: You can view and grade the video submissions in the Grade Center.
Note: All videos will be saved in a Panopto subfolder called Student Submissions, located under the main Panopto folder of the course in Panopto.
Have them try the strategies below to correct the problem. If they continue to have trouble, encourage them to request help from UBIT.
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).
Provision your course (see Step 1 above) before you can use Panopto video with your course.
After students answer the final question by clicking Finish they must also click Continue in order for the grades to be imported.
