If you use Panopto streaming media in your course and want last semester’s videos available in the current course, there are a couple of additional steps.
You will need to commission the new course in order to give access to this semester’s course users. See instructions.
Pay particular attention to page 6 of that document. When you commission the course, you will be presented with a screen asking you to select the folders you want to use in the course. By default, the folder named after the current semester will be selected. How you configure the folder(s) depends on how you use Panopto.
Example 1: You create individual links in a content area to each Panopto video .
In this case, in the left-hand pane, find the folder for the past course where the videos reside and move that folder to the right. Leave both the current and past course folders there.
Example 2: Students access and choose from a list of all available Panopto content for the course (by using a tool link or the Course Tools menu link).
On the left-hand pane, find the folder for the past course where the videos reside and move that folder to the right. Then select the folder with the current course name and move it to the left, leaving only the past course’s folder on the right.
** PLEASE NOTE: this will not work if you want to create a Panopto dropbox for your students to upload their own media files. See example 3 below.
Example 3: You need to use a Panopto dropbox folder for students to submit media files
If you use Panopto dropbox for student submssion of media, you will need to retain both the current and the past folders, as in Example 1. If you provide access to your Panopto content as in Example 2, the list of available videos will look a bit less user-friendly, but still works.
If you’re not sure of the best option, or you have any questions about Panopto content in your copied course, contact your Blackboard Support Team.
