Submitting video in Canvas takes two steps: upload and embed.
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!
- Navigate to Discussions in your Canvas course. Click on the name of the discussion to which you are submitting video. Then click Reply.
- Click the green Panopto-embed button () above the text-entry box that appears. If you don't see the button, it may be hidden under the menu button. Click the three-dot button at far-right of the toolbar to reveal it.
In order for the video to be automatically viewable by all other students in the course, you must use the embed button above the text-entry box. DO NOT use the embed code found in the video's sharing settings; DO NOT use the shareable link (unless you adjust the video's sharing settings first).
- In the window that opens, select My Folder from the dropdown menu:
- 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.
- 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-entry box. 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, click the Post Reply button under the text-entry box to save.
- Your video must be in H.264 format and compressed for streaming.
- 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.
