Videos - Panopto

How to share / publish your videos in Moodle?

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)
The icon is the last one in the first row.

A new page will load that will allow you to select an existing video, upload new content, or record with the Panopto for Windows or Mac client.

Detailed help regarding this:

Student access to videos:
If the videos are placed into the folder of the course in Panopto (default), then all students of the course will be able automatically to watch them when they enter the course (where you embed them, and also from the Panopto block - if it is available for them).

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.

If you embed a video from a different Panopto folder (a folder for a different Moodle course or your personal "my folder" in Panopto), then students of the course will not be able to watch it by default.

You need to either:


If your students have problems watching the videos:
- Check if the video is in the correct folder in Panopto, and the student is assigned on the course in Moodle
- If they still have issues, ask them to use an incognito window to avoid cache problems.
