Students: Upload, Share, and Embed

This guide explains how to upload a video to your personal Panopto folder (My Folder) and then embed or share it outside of Canvas.

For help using Panopto to submit to Canvas, see "Submit to Video Assignments or Discussions in Canvas."

NOTE: When you embed a Panopto video in a Canvas course, any member of that course can view that video! When you embed a video anywhere else, you'll have to change the video's sharing settings to allow others to view it. See this guide to sharing for help.

 

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 My Folder.

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).
