Panopto: Creating a Student Submission Folder

Updated on


Panopto allows for an Assignment Folder to be created within a course folder that automatically assigns limited creator rights to the students enrolled in the course and allows them to submit videos to this folder. By default, students are not able to see or view other student submissions within the Assignment Folder. This can be changed within the Settings for the Assignment Folder. Instructions on this optional setting change are at the end of this article. 

Students who have never used Panopto will need to access Panopto to generate their creator account before they will be able to complete an assignment in D2L. They can do this through a Panopto access link you include in your course. Selecting the Panopto Access link in your course will automatically create their account.

Congrats! Students are now able to view other students' submissions, but cannot edit them.

You are done. Great job!
