Submitting video in Canvas takes two steps: upload and embed.
When you embed a Panopto video in a submission to an assignment using the Panopto-embed button (), only the instructor can view the video.
When you embed a Panopto video in a reply to a discussion using the Panopto-embed button (), all members of that course can view the video!
1. Navigate either to Assignments or Discussions in Canvas, depending on your professor's instructions. Click on the name of the assignment or discussion to which you're submitting video.
If you're submitting to an assignment: click Submit Assignment at top right:
If you're submitting to a discussion: click Reply:
2. Click the green Panopto-embed button () above the text entry box. If you don't see a text-entry box, notify your professor.
You MUST use the embed button above the text editor; DO NOT use the embed code found in the video's sharing settings.
3. In the window that opens, select My Folder from the dropdown menu.
4. Click the Upload tab. Drag-and-drop your video into the designated area, or click "Choose video or audio files" to browse your computer. The video will upload.
NOTE: If you've already uploaded your video to My Folder, find and select it under the Choose tab.
5. When the upload progress bar is replaced by the word "Processing," click the Insert button at bottom right. Your video will appear inside the text editor. It will take a few minutes or more to become playable, depending on its size, but you don't need to wait for it.
When you're ready to submit:
In assignments: click the Submit Assignment button under the editor to save.
In discussions: click the Post Reply button under the editor to save.
NOTE: Your video must be in H.264 format and compressed for streaming.
NOTE: You can only submit one type of item at a time to assignments. If you need to submit both a Word document and video to the same assignment, you can 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 on your video so that "Anyone at your organization with the link" can view.
