Use UB's streaming server, Panopto, to deliver video and audio content inside your UB Learns course.
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.
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.
We recommend that you have your students click on the Panopto tool link you just created 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.
Method 1: Embedding video with other content (a.k.a. Mashup)
Method 2: Embedding video only (Panopto Video Embed)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
