I want a Panopto video I made show up in multiple modules

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) > > I want a Panopto video I made show up in multiple modules

There may be many reasons to have a video you have created in Panopto, available in multiple modules. Perhaps you made a video for this year’s module, and you have students’ retaking the module from last year, so the 2019 module also needs this video.

In order for any Panopto video to appear in a module area, both modules have to be provisioned with Panopto. (All 2020-21 modules have a Panopto link. Old modules do not. If you wish to share a 2020 video on a 2019 module, you will have to manually add Panopto and provision the old module. Guidance for that is here: Manually Adding Panopto to a module area)

Once both Modules are ‘Panopto Ready’

Go to the module where you’ve created your video, so that you can find it, and copy it over.

Once you’ve selected the video, new Option Buttons will appear at the top. We suggest one uses Copy rather that Move, so that both modules have permissions to view the video.

Now, in the search box start to type the name of the module where you want the video to be copied to…

Once you’ve selected the module you wish to copy the video to, click on the Copy Button.

It will take some time, and it will ‘spin icon’ for a minute or two. Once it is done, it will say so, and you can close the window.

Now, go to the other module, click on Panopto Video in the side menu and you should see your copied video in the list.

Now your video will be visible to both modules’ students. We recommend that you embed your video in context into your study materials area of your module, using the Panopto Video add content tool in My Studies.
