Adding Panopto to your D2L Course Site

Before you can share videos with your students, you'll need to provision a folder for your class in Panopto. You can do this one of two ways: by simply opening your Panopto account while you're in your D2L course site, or by adding a link to Panopto in your D2L course site's Content area. If you have a custom navigation bar in your course, it's possible that you will only have access to the second option.

Provision a Panopto Folder through the Course Navigation Bar

  1. Go to your D2L course site.
  2. Click (A) Edit Course in the course navigation bar, then chose (B) Panopto from the dropdown menu's options. Your Panopto account will open in a new window, and the new folder provisioned for your class will be displayed.
    Select Edit Course, then Panopto

Provision a Panopto Folder in the Content Area

  1. Go to your D2L course site.
  2. Click Content in the course navigation bar.
  3. Open the module in which you want to add a Panopto link.
  4. Click the (A) Add Existing Activities button, then select (B) External Learning Tools on its dropdown menu. A pop-up window will display several options.
  5. Click Panopto Recordings. The window will close, and a link to Panopto will appear as a topic within the module.
  6. Click the Panopto Recordings link; it will be the last topic within the module. Your Panopto account will open within D2L, and the folder for your class will be displayed.
