Panopto Student Submissions

Panopto is the University’s chosen tool for capturing media recordings.

You can access the Panopto cloud from the Panopto Event Capture link in Blackboard, within the Tools tab.

You have a ‘My Folder’ for storing your personal media files.

If your instructor has asked you to submit a Panopto recording as your assignment submission you will need to record (using the Panopto recorder) or upload a recording to your My Folder. You will then need to submit your recording to the official submission point via Blackboard.

Panopto for online assignment submission

If your instructor has asked you to submit a Panopto recording as your assignment submission you will find information about how to attach your file from our Submitting assignments guidance.

Important note 1: It is essential that you allow ample time before the submission deadline to upload your recording to the Panopto cloud (we recommend that you allow at least two hours before the submission deadline). Depending on the size of the file, Panopto will take some time to convert the file before it is available to attach to your assignment submission through Blackboard.

Important note 2: To avoid upload problems, it is recommended that you upload very large media files over a wired internet connection rather than wifi.

Important note 3: Uploading or creating a file in your Panopto My folder area does not constitute a submission and instructors will not be able to access your file. You need to complete the assignment submission process following the steps in the guidance.

Important note 4: If you are recording PowerPoint slides these will need to be saved to and opened from your desktop. Not saving and opening from your desktop may result in your recording failing to upload.

Important note 5: Submissions MUST be made using the Panopto Video Student Video submission option from the add Content (+) button within the text editor. Using the Panopto Video option will result in no recording being added to the submission.

Important note 6: Edits to your recording will need to have been made prior to submission for online assessment (if you have already submitted, any edits will not be seen by your marker). If you wish to edit after submission you will need to resubmit to the assignment after the edits have been made.

Important note 7: Students are able to view Panopto content attached to their submission from their receipt on the Blackboard Coursework tab. Select the Panopto link under ‘Submission Text’. If it is only the Panopto content that has been added to a submission, a warning message will show on the Coursework tab to indicate that no files are attached but the Panopto content itself will be visible via the receipt. The warning message relates to file attachments that you browse to rather than mashup content.
