The assessment folder will now open. It is important to take note of the name of your assessment folder. This will help make sure you are putting your content in the right place.

There is a folder icon, next to it is the courses assignment folder name.

From here you then have a few options, if you select the ‘Create’ button. You can either:

Launch the Panopto recorder if you have it installed. Doing this will make sure you are recording to the right folder.

Launch the Panopto web recorder, so there is no software to install and it will record to the right folder.

Or you can upload a video/audio file to the folder.

The top 'Create' button can be selected to show recording options.

If you have made a recording in your personal ‘My Folder’ instead; use our guide on how to move a Panopto recording. This is where you will need to find the exact name of your assessment folder that you should have found from the above steps.
