Embedding a Panopto Video

Display a Panopto video with text, images, or links using the HTML Editor in D2L. The following instructions show how to embed a Panopto video on a page in Content, but Panopto videos can also be added to news items and descriptions areas (in submission folders, quizzes, and discussion topics and forums).

  1. Select Content in the course navigation bar.
  2. Select the New button, then select Create a File from the dropdown menu. A new item will be created in your course site, and the HTML editor will appear.
  3. Enter a title for the new item.
  4. In the following text field, enter any text which you want to appear with the Panopto video, such as a brief description or assignment instructions.
  5. Select the Insert Stuff icon, which is the very first link on the left in the HTML editor menu bar. A pop-up menu with options for adding different types of media will open.
  6. Select the Panopto Insert Stuff option by selecting the corresponding radio button.  A pop-up window of your Panopto account will open.
  7. Find your video:
    • (A) If you have not uploaded the video, select the Upload tab, then locate the video you want to add by scrolling through the list.
    • (B) If you have previously uploaded the video, simply select it from your list of videos in the Choose tab, which will be selected by default.
    • (C) If the video you are looking for comes from a prior course, select the course name and choose Everything, then search for the title of the video.
  8. Select the Insert button at the bottom right corner of the window. (You may need to use the rightmost scroll bar and scroll down to reveal the Insert button.)
