Embed a Panopto Video in Canvas

Follow these steps to embed a Panopto video in a Canvas page, assignment, discussion, announcement, or anywhere else you have access to the rich content editor.

Note: When you embed a Panopto video in Canvas using the Panopto Embed button (The Panopto-embed button, which looks like a recycling symbol.) above the rich content editor, all members of that course can view the video! This only works if you embed using this button. It will NOT work if you use the embed code found in a video's sharing settings.

 

  1. In Canvas, navigate to the content in which you want to embed a video.
  2. Click Edit. In the rich content editor, place your cursor where you wish to embed a video. Then, click the Panopto Embed button (The Panopto-embed button, which looks like a recycling symbol.) above the editor:

  3. Select My Folder from the dropdown menu at the top of the new window:

    Finding My Folder from the dropdown menu on the Panopto embedder screen.

  4. Click the Upload tab. Follow the prompts to upload your video to My Folder. (If you already uploaded your video, skip ahead.) Videos in My Folder are private until you share or embed them. When you see your video listed as Processing, click Insert at the bottom right.

    • Your video may take several minutes or more to finish processing and become available for viewing, but you can continue this process while it's processing.

      A video has been uploaded and is now processing on the Panopto embedder screen. The Upload tab and Insert button are indicated.

    • If you already uploaded your video to Panopto: Click the Choose tab. Select the folder that contains your video using the dropdown menu at the top of the window. Select the video you want to embed, then click Insert at the bottom right:

      The Choose tab, radio buttons for selecting a video, and Insert button are indicated on the Panopto embedder screen.

  5. Your video will appear where you positioned the cursor inside the text editor. Save the Canvas page when you finish editing. Your embedded video will appear where you placed it on the page.
