Student Guide: Submitting Video Assignments in Canvas

If your submission is only for your instructor:

To upload:

1. Access Panopto through Canvas by clicking on “Panopto” in your course menu, or by going directly to http://emerson.panopto.com.

2. This takes you to your Panopto video library. Once there, select My Folder from the folder dropdown menu.

3. After you’ve selected My Folder, click the purple “Create” button. Then, click “Upload media.”

4. Select your video using the file browser, or drag-and-drop it onto the upload window. Your video will then appear in My Folder and take a few moments to process.

NOTE: Your video must be in H.264 format and compressed for streaming.

 

To share with your instructor:

5. Sharing in Panopto works similarly to Google Drive; by default, videos in My Folder are only viewable by you. However, you can choose to share the video with anyone you’d like, including your instructor. To do so, hover your mouse over the video in My Folder (after it’s finished uploading and processing), and click the Share button that appears.

6. On the Share window that appears, click the large grey rectangle under “Who has access.” On the dropdown menu, select “Specific people.”

7. In the box under “Invite people,” begin typing your instructor’s name. The search will auto-populate a list of names. Click your instructor’s name (it should have an Emerson email address to its right). If your instructor’s name doesn’t appear, DON’T enter it manually. Instead, ask your instructor to click the Panopto button in her Canvas course- this will create her account, and then you can share with her.

8. Choose whether or not to notify recipients via email, and include a message if you’d like. When you’re ready, click the purple “Send and save changes” button. Your video is now shared.

9. If your instructor has asked you to submit this video to a Canvas assignment: navigate to that assignment by clicking on Assignments in Canvas. Then click Submit Assignment.

10. On the submission editing screen, you’ll have a rich text editor (see screenshot below). Click the green Panopto button above the text box.

If your submission is to be shared with the class:

To upload:

Follow steps 1-4 above with the following change: in step 2, instead of selecting My Folder, select whichever folder your instructor has asked you to use.

If your instructor hasn't specified a folder, upload to My Folder and share your video with the class using the following instructions.

To share your video with the class:

Follow steps 5-8. Instead of searching for your instructor’s name, search for your course number, including the section. Select the course that matches your current semester and section. You’ll need to add both the course’s Creators and Viewers (see the screenshot below). This will share your video with all of your classmates and your instructor.

If you’ve been asked to embed the video in a Canvas assignment or discussion, follow steps 9-13 above.

If you need help with any of these steps, please contact ITG@emerson.edu.
