Using the Panopto assignment folder


An alternative method of accepting student video submissions via Panopto is to create an Assignment Folder.

The Instructor will be able to view all recordings uploaded to the Assignment folder. Students will only be able view the recordings they have personally uploaded.

It should be notedthat the Assignment Folder tool is not integrated with the Grade Centre. If you want to use video submissions as part of a marked activity, please see our support pages on setting up and using a Panopto Student Video Assignment.

  5. Select the Overview tab and choose the Create Assignment Folder link (highlighted in red below).

  6. The Assignment folder will be created. Close the Create Assignment Folder window.
