By default Panopto content will show under your courses ‘Recorded Sessions’ area, but there maybe some instances where you would like to highlight a specific recording or link up content to a recording on your Blackboard courses content areas. The following guides show how to do this.
Panopto Video Embed
This is quickest way to embed a Panopto video in a content area is to use the Panopto Video Embed too.
Start by going to your Blackboard course and navigate to the content area you wish to embed the video. Then under ‘Build Content’ select ‘Panopto Video Embed’.
It will open a new page that will show you previews of the videos in the courses Panopto folder.
Find the video you wish to embed and select it so it becomes highlighted.
Once happy with the video select select the blue button for ‘Insert Video’.
It will then take you back to your Blackboard page and show the video embedded into your course and ready to playback.
From the same interface it is also possible to embed videos from other Panopto folders. Please make sure that you check the sharing permissions of the videos so that your students on your course are able to play them back.
To do this select the drop down menu under ‘Select Panopto Videos’.
From here you can either type in the search box for the name of the folder that has the recording stored in, or select through folder structure to locate the folder.
Once you have located the correct folder you can add the desired recording as shown in the first set of steps.
Blackboard content item
If you would like to add some text, link some supporting documents/files with a Panopto video in a Blackboard content item. You will need to use a different approach.
First locate the Panopto video that you wish to embed and select the ‘Share’ button.
Look towards the bottom of the share box and select the ‘Embed’ button.
On the embed code page you may wish to select some additional options such as showing the University logo, then once happy select the ‘Copy Embed Code’ button.
Now that you have the code go to the content area on your course that you wish to embed the video to and select from the ‘Build Content’ menu create then ‘Item’.
On the content builder page, look for the code insert tool represented by < > from the icons.
On the code insert tool box that now shows paste the embed code from Panopto and then select the blue ‘Save’ button.
You will now see a preview of how the embedded video will show and you can add some additional text, links or files etc. Once happy select the blue ‘Submit’ button.
Your video will now display inline with the other pages content.
