Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) > > How do I move a Panopto video into a different module?

If you accidentally recorded a Panopto video into the incorrect module, you can move it to the correct module. You have to do this, so that the students on the correct module have permission to view it.

Go to the module where the video is mistakenly living. Click on Panopto Video link (1) in the menu, and then click on the ‘expand’ button (2) to enter into the full Panopto experience.
