Students: Upload, Share, and Embed

This guide explains how to upload a video to your personal Panopto folder (My Folder) and then share its link or embed it on a web page. For help using Panopto in Canvas, see "Submit to Video Assignments or Discussions in Canvas."

1. Access My Folder

Go to panopto.emerson.edu and log-in with your Emerson credentials. You'll be taken directly to My Folder. You can also reach My Folder from the Browse section of the left-hand menu. Any video uploaded to My Folder is private until you share it with others.

2. Upload Your Video

Once in My Folder, click on the purple Create button and select Upload media.


You'll be prompted to upload a video. Once the video has finished uploading and is "processing," you may close the upload window. Your video will appear in the Panopto folder that's open in your browser.

NOTE: All videos uploaded to Panopto must be compressed for streaming (H.264/MP4).

3. Get the Shareable Link or Embed Code

Hover over the video and click the Share button that appears:

The share button underneath a Panopto video.

A window with sharing options will appear. Click the large grey rectangle under "Who has access" and choose a permissions setting for your video (if you choose "Anyone at your organization with the link," users will be prompted to log-in with their Emerson accounts). Then click Save Changes.


At the top of the sharing window, you'll find a shareable link:


Copy this link and share it with whomever you wish. Or, click "Embed," copy the entire code that appears, and paste it into a web page's HTML editor to embed your video on a web page (a WordPress post, for example).
