There are three ways to incorporate Panopto videos into your ELMS-Canvas Course space. Please follow the directions below to ensure you are sharing the videos correctly and all of your students have access.
Copying the share link, embed code, both from the Panopto video share settings will NOT authenticate students in your ELMS-Canvas course space and they may receive an access error. If you have received an email asking you to grant access to a user this is what happened. Inserting videos into your course space following the steps below will ensure access for anyone affiliated with your ELMS-Canvas course space.
Please note: The default share setting of specific people on all Panopto videos within your Panopto ELMS-Canvas course folder means that only those affiliated with your course space as a teacher, student or TA will be able to view your course videos.
The simplest way to give your students access to all of your course videos is to enable the Panopto Recordings tab in your course navigation. Please know that unless you change the availability settings aka date/time on a video, any videos visible to you in this course Panopto Recordings tab will be visible to your students as well.
With Panopto, videos (sessions) can be embedded in ELMS-Canvas anywhere with the rich content editor (in pages, discussions, announcement and assignments) and played back on-demand on any laptop or mobile device. From any embedded video, students can easily access search, the table of contents, notes or discussion. Students may also choose to open an embedded video in the full Panopto interactive viewer if needed. You can embed any session that you have Creator access to.
If you organize your ELMS-Canvas course space by modules, you can add Panopto videos directly using the External Tool add item feature. The videos will then be visible on a page of their own as students click through the module items.
NOTE: As noted above, do not copy the link from the Panopto video share settings and add as an external URL. This will not engage the ELMS-Canvas LTI integration with Panopto and your students will be emailing you to grant them access.
