Teacher Faq - course editing
Videos - Panopto
How to share / publish your videos in Moodle?
With the Quick method, you can add the video into the course as a Panopto video activity - enrolled students will have access automatically. This is the simplest / recommended method.
- 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. Embed the videos into any Moodle content
You can embed videos from any place where you can use the Moodle text editor - like descriptions, summaries, forum posts, labels, links etc. (Add an activity > label)
Student access to videos:
When a student first enters a course, the Moodle page may load before the permission sync from accessing the Panopto block has completed. If they have access issues for the first time, they just need to use an incognito window to avoid cache problems.
