Videos - Panopto

Panopto is an online video platform. It enables you to create, share, and stream videos. CEU has a subscription to the service, and now it is integrated into Moodle.

If you have your videos either on your computer or in a Folder in Panopto, you can easily upload them to Moodle.

I. Quick method - share an existing video with the Panopto video activity

You can add a video into the course as a Panopto video activity - enrolled students will have access automatically.



  • Open the course > Turn editing on > Add an activity or resource > Select Panopto video  > Click on "select content". 

A pop-up window will appear. 

Important: If you get an error message or the popup window prompts you to log in:

a) If you have your video on your computer

 select the "Upload' tab. Select the video from your computer > wait until it is uploaded > Click insert and save the form.

If you do not change the default folder, the video will be uploaded into the Panopto folder of the course. After the upload/processing is ready, students will have access.

b) If you have the video in Panopto already

Choose the folder > Select the video > Click insert and save the form.

If the video is not stored in the folder of the course, students will have access. but other teachers of the Moodle course will not have editing rights, they will be able to view it only.

Rare issues:  The authentication to Panopto may fail occasionally - if this happens you will see a login screen in the small window. If this happens, close the small window, log in again, and repeat the process.

II. Advanced method - you need to create the videos first

Note: It may be already connected if your coordinator did it for you when the course was created. If this is so, you will find the Panopto block at the block section of your course.

Download the Panopto software on your desktop computer/laptop and record the videos. You may record basic videos online, directly from the browser. 

3. Share the videos with your students - see the Quick method at the top, or open the link for further details.
