Use UB's streaming server, Panopto, YouTube or Google Drive to deliver video and audio content inside UB Learns.
ON THIS PAGE:
For the optimal user viewing experience, we recommend utilizing a streaming service to store and deliver video/audio content in 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.
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 access to 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 access 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 access to 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 section to include the current course viewer and creator groups.
Click on the folder or file you wish to share.
1. Click the share icon
2. Under Who has access, click the down arrow
3. Choose Specific People
4. In Invite people, begin typing the name of the course (e.g., IE507) or the UB Learns course ID (e.g., 2209_12345) and a list of viewer and creator groups will pop-up.
5. Choose the Viewer group for your current course
6. Select Can View in the drop-down box below
7. Click Save changes
Alternately, you can open your videos up to anyone at UB by choosing Anyone at the organization with the link in step 3, above.
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.
In Panopto, you have the ability to add quiz questions to a Panopto video at any point during the presentation. 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.
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.
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.
