Submit to Video Assignments or Discussions in Canvas

Submitting video in Canvas takes two steps: upload and embed.


To upload:

1. Access Panopto through Canvas by clicking on Panopto in the lefthand course menu, or by going directly to panopto.emerson.edu.

Click the Panopto button in Canvas. 

2. Select My Folder from the folder dropdown menu.

Select My Folder from the folder dropdown menu. 

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

Click the Create button and select 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. Your video is now uploaded.

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


To embed:

5. Navigate to the assignment or discussion in Canvas. For assignments: click Submit Assignment at top right. For discussions: click Reply.



6. On the submission editing screen, under the Text Entry tab, you’ll see a rich text editor. Click the green Panopto-embed button above the text entry box.

When you embed a Panopto video in Canvas using the Panopto-embed button (The Panopto-embed button, which looks like a recycling symbol.), all members of that course can view the video!

This ONLY works if you embed using the button above the text editor; it will NOT work if you use the embed code found in a video's sharing settings.

The Panopto embed button is located above the text editor in Canvas.

7. In the window that opens, select My Folder from the dropdown menu.

From the embed window's folder dropdown menu, select My Folder.

8. Under Choose, select the video you wish to embed, then click the purple Insert button at bottom right.

Click the video you wish to insert, then click the Insert button at bottom right.

9. Your video will appear inside the text editor.

When you're ready to submit, click the blue Submit Assignment (or Post Reply in discussions) button under the editor to save. You're done! 

Click Submit Assignment at the bottom of the assignment page to finish submitting.


NOTE: You can only submit one item at a time. If you need to submit both a Word document and video, simply paste the link to your video (found at the top of the video's Sharing Settings) into the word document you're submitting, and clearly label it for your instructor. Be sure to change the Sharing Settings so that "Anyone at your organization with the link" can view.
