How to add a Panopto video without worrying about permissions
Occasionally we have a Panopto video that isn't meant for just one or two modules, but rather is a video meant for wider distribution. These directions will show you how to share a Panopto video more widely <blockquote><strong>*Please note: Interactive additions to a Panopto video, such as Quizzes will NOT work if this method is utilised.*</strong></blockquote> <a href="">Here is a Panopto Open Permissions</a> word document version of these directions, if needed. Here is the video version of this guidance, if that is your preferred medium: <iframe style="border: 1px solid #464646;" src=";autoplay=false&amp;offerviewer=true&amp;showtitle=true&amp;showbrand=false&amp;start=0&amp;interactivity=all" width="600" height="338" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe> [toc] <h3>Changing Permissions</h3> First, we have to change the viewing permissions on the video itself. Go to the place where the video has been created <a href=""><img class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-1944" src="" alt="Screencapture of a generic video in a panopto area" width="550" height="287" /></a> Click on the Share button on the video <a href=""><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-1945" src="" alt="Screencapture of panopto share button on a video" width="665" height="223" /></a> Click on the Sharing Dropdown button to choose a different permission <a href=""><img class="aligncenter wp-image-1946" src="" alt="Screencapture of sharing dropdown menu button" width="400" height="252" /></a> Choose the bottom-most choice, Anyone with the Link <a href=""><img class="aligncenter wp-image-1947" src="" alt="Screencapture of anyone with a link choice at the very bottom of the dropdown" width="400" height="264" /></a> Click on the Save Changes button (1) and notice that there is a Link and Embed option at the top of the window (2) <a href=""><img class="aligncenter wp-image-1948" src="" alt="Screencapture of the save changes button" width="420" height="281" /></a> <blockquote><strong>Please note, that there are two ways to share the video. Both are quite equally valid options... However embedding the video can be a better choice than just sharing the link.</strong></blockquote> <h3>Option 1: Sharing only the link</h3> After changing the permissions, as described above, Copy the Link from the Share window in Panopto (see screencapture above at arrow 2) and go to the My Studies area (or other website) where you wish the video to be shared. Note, your video will not be in the Panopto Video folder of this module. Just skip that area, and go directly to Study Materials. <a href=""><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-1951" src="" alt="Screencapture of the Panopto video and Study Materials links highlighted in the menu in a module area on My Studies" width="638" height="485" /></a> Once you're in Study Materials, choose Build Content <a href=""><img class="aligncenter wp-image-1952 size-medium" src="" alt="Screencapture of the build content tab highlighted" width="300" height="122" /></a> Choose the Web Link option from the drop-down list <a href=""><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-1953" src="" alt="Screencapture of the web link option being highlighted under Build Content in My Studies" width="461" height="537" /></a> Type in the name of the link (title) this is the text that will appear on the page. Then add the URL that you copied from Panopto into the URL text box. <a href=""><img class="aligncenter wp-image-1954" src="" alt="Screencapture of the name of the link and the url being pasted in the window provided" width="550" height="252" /></a> Type a description of what the video is about, and then click on the submit button. <a href=""><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-1955" src="" alt="Screencapture of descriptive text being added to the area, and the submit button being highlighted" width="896" height="360" /></a> You will notice that the link is rather 'generic' looking and not really very enticing. But it is now shared. <a href=""><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-1956" src="" alt="Screencapture of the successful addtion of the linked Panopto video in a My Studies area" width="712" height="225" /></a> <h3>Option 2: Embedding the video</h3> The suggested option for sharing this video in the My Studies area, or elsewhere for that matter, is to use the Embed code generated from panopto in sharing the video on a page. After changing the permissions, as described above, instead of getting the link from Panopto, click on the Embed option. Change the width of the video to 600 px, this is a better size for most My Studies areas and websites. then click on the Copy Embed Code button. <a href=""><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-1957" src="" alt="Screencapture of the embed option in Panopto again, showing the width chaged to 600 px and the embed button highlighted." width="786" height="481" /></a> Go to your My Studies area, go to the Study Materials page, click on Build Content, and this time, choose Item <a href=""><img class="aligncenter wp-image-1958" src="" alt="Screencapture of the Build content tab highlighted with the Item choice highlighted in the dropdown menu" width="500" height="275" /></a> Add the name of the video resource (1), and then click on the Code Button in the content area of the window (2)... It looks like this: &lt; &gt; <a href=""><img class="aligncenter size-large wp-image-1959" src="" alt="Screencapture of the Item window with the name being added and the 'code' button in the content editor being highlighted." width="550" height="241" /></a> In the 'Source Code' window, right-click with your mouse, and choose Paste (or Ctrl-V on a Windows PC or Cmd-V on a Mac) <a href=""><img class="aligncenter wp-image-1960 size-medium" src="" alt="Screencapture of a right-click menu with Paste being highlighted" width="300" height="197" /></a> You will see the embed code pasted in the window. Click on the Save button. <a href=""><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-1961" src="" alt="Screencapture of the embed code in the content area, and the SAVE button highlighted" width="917" height="247" /></a> Now you will see the successful embedding of the video in the content area. Click on Submit. <a href=""><img class="aligncenter wp-image-1962" src="" alt="Screencapture of the successful embed of the video in the add item window, with the submit button highlighted." width="600" height="413" /></a> Notice the video is now embedded in the page (2). Also note that it is MUCH more enticing and will quite possibly get more views than the simple web-link above it (1). <a href=""><img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-1963" src="" alt="Screencapture of the web link and the embedded video below, showing that the embed option is better looking than the web link." width="601" height="488" /></a> (If using other web-applications such as Microsoft SharePoint or Edublogs, the embed option is the same as above, just found in a diffferent place on each platform. On SharePoint: <img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-2512" src="" alt="Screencapture of the add content popup window in Microsoft SharePoint with the 'embed' option highlighted." width="523" height="422" /> And on Edublogs/Wordpress: <img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-2513" src="" alt="screencapture of the text-tab in the wordpress editing window rather than the visual tab" width="419" height="349" /> &nbsp; &nbsp; Again, we suggest one uses Option 2 for sharing these videos on Module areas and Web sites.
