Panopto – How do I provision my course in Blackboard?

iSolutions has paused the automatic provision of all courses for 2023-24. You only need to follow this guide if you are running a new course or a course that hasn’t used Panopto before.

Follow these steps to activate your course for the semester.

Load up your Blackboard course.

From the left menu area on your course, select the ‘plus’ pill icon from the top.
