Using Panopto for Student Presentations

If you want to use Panopto as a platform for facilitating student presentations, there are a few steps you will need to take in order to prepare your D2L course and your students.

There are two options for how you can use Panopto to facilitate student presentations, and the setup required will depend upon the option you choose.

Option 1: Choose this option if you want students to view (and comment on) their classmates' videos.

Option 2: Choose this option if you, as the instructor, want to be the only one viewing the student videos.


Option 1: Students Share Videos with the Class

  1. Add Panopto to your course.

  2. Before you can use Panpoto for student presentations, you'll need to provision (or create) a general folder for your class in Panopto.

  3. Create a Panopto assignment folder.

  4. The Panopto assignment folder is what makes it possible for students to upload their media to Panopto.

  5. Create a D2L discussion.

  6. Students should access Panopto through the D2L Discussion tool. Students navigate through a D2L discussion topic to access the Panopto recorder and upload content to the Panopto assignment folder. Students also use the D2L discussion topic to share and comment on other student videos.

  7. Provide students with instructions.

  8. Students will need instructions for downloading the Panopto recorder, recording their video, uploading their video to Panopto, and adding their video within the D2L discussion. Students should access Panopto through a D2L discussion.

    We recommend providing students with a link to the Panopto Student Guides within the D2L discussion forum or topic description. Students will use the If Your Video is for Your Whole Class to See instructions.


Option 2: Students Share Videos Only with the Instructor

  1. Add Panopto to your course.

  2. Before you can use Panpoto for student presentations, you'll need to provision (or create) a general folder for your class in Panopto.

  3. Create a Panopto assignment folder.

  4. The Panopto assignment folder is what makes it possible for students to upload their media to Panopto.

  5. Add a Panopto link.

  6. You will need to create a Panopto Recordings link within the Content area of your course. Students will access the Panopto assignment folder through this link in order to upload their video content.

  7. Provide students with instructions.

  8. Students will need instructions for downloading the Panopto recorder and uploading their video to Panopto.

    We recommend providing students with a link to the Panopto Student Guides page. Students will use the If Your Video is for Only the Instructor to See instructions.

    News items and assignment descriptions are good places to include the link to instructions.
