Are you a staff member who has recently recorded a lecture, performance, or other feat of Emersonian greatness for your department? Why not upload that video to Panopto for use on a departmental website (or other web page)? Here’s how!

1. Request a folder

Contact ITG@emerson.edu and ask us to create a departmental Panopto folder for storing your video(s). Let us know if you wish to give anyone else permission to upload to this folder.

2. Upload

Go to panopto.emerson.edu and log-in with your Emerson credentials.

You can use the Browse section of the left-hand menu to navigate through your Panopto folders; click Browse to expand the folder menu, then click a folder’s name to view its contents. Find the folder ITG created for you and click on it.

The Browse dropdown in the Panopto portal.

Once inside, click on the purple Create button and select Upload media.

The upload button in the Panopto portal.

You’ll be prompted to upload a video. Once the video has finished uploading and is “processing,” you may close the upload window. Your video will appear in the Panopto folder that’s open in your browser.

NOTE: All videos uploaded to Panopto must be compressed for streaming (H.264/MP4).

3. Share

Hover over the video and click the Share button that appears:

The share button underneath a Panopto video.

A window with sharing settings will appear. If you want your video to be publicly viewable, click under “Who has access.” On the dropdown menu, click “Public on the web.” Then click Save Changes.

Choosing Public on the Web in the Panopto sharing settings.

4. Get the Shareable Link or Embed Code

At the top of the sharing window, you’ll find a shareable link. You can copy this link and share it with whomever you wish. Or, click Embed (to the right of Link). An embed code will appear. Copy it in its entirety, then paste it into the HTML editor of the desired webpage. After saving that page, your video should appear and be publicly viewable.

OPTIONAL: After ITG creates your departmental folder, you can add members to it yourself. Access the folder and click the Share button at top-right (it looks like two figures). Under Invite people, start typing a person’s name. Click the desired name. Designate invitees as either those who “Can create” or “Can view.” Creators can upload to this folder and view videos in it, while Viewers can only view. When you’re done adding people, click Save Changes.

For further assistance, please contact ITG@emerson.edu.
