If students are required to make a video for an assignment, they can submit the video to a submission folder in D2L. Submission folders can be connected to grade items and rubrics for assessment. Having students submit their videos to a submission folder means that the assignment can be evaluated directly in D2L with no download requirement.
Note: Selecting this option means that students will not be able to submit a Word document or PDF.
Use Providing Students with Instructions - Instructor as Only Viewer to provide students with instructions for uploading video files and to learn more about how students will interact with Panopto in the course.
Create a grade item for the submission folder using the information in Creating a Grade Item. Then, associate the grade item with the submission folder. See Creating Submission Folders for more information.
