If the Panopto app isn’t installed on your iPad, please go to the App store and download it
When you sign into Panopto for the first time, it will prompt you to enter the following URL: emerson.hosted.panopto.com
Sign in through EmersonDUO using your Emerson login
When you’re ready to record click ‘Record & upload’ and choose the course folder for your section
Give your video a name and click ‘Start recording’ (or ‘Choose a video’ if you previously recorded the video on your iPad). Two messages will pop-up asking for permission to use your iPad’s camera and microphone. Click OK
Once you’re done recording you can preview the video and choose to ‘Use Video’ or ‘Retake’
If you chose to use the video, click ‘Upload’ and the video will upload into your Panopto course folder in Canvas
All your students will have viewing privileges for all the videos in that folder
Your students can view the videos in Canvas when they click on Panopto
Note: If you previously recorded videos on your iPad and would like to upload them to Panopto, it might be faster to use a computer for that. For help, please contact: email@example.com
By default, your students will be able to view videos you upload to Canvas using Panopto.
If you want to enable your students to submit videos in Canvas using Panopto, you have to create an assignment folder for them. Here’s how you do it:
First click on Panopto in your course navigation menu
Next, click on the settings gear in the Panopto window
In Overview, click Create Assignment Folder. An assignment folder in Panopto will be created and your students can upload/record videos into it
In your instructions, remind your students to upload/record their videos into the folder your created for them
If you would like your students to be able to see each other’s videos, go into folder Settings and check the box that says, Allow viewers to see each other’s sessions
That is the recommended workflow if you would like your students to be able to see each other’s videos.
In Canvas, we recommend the following workflows for submitting videos as part of an assignment:
If you want students to see each other’s work, in addition to checking the appropriate box in the assignment folder settings, ask your students to submit their videos to a Discussion. The Panopto record/upload icon is available in the Rich Text Editor
If you would like to keep the submission private, we recommend you create an assignment and choose Text Entry from the Submission Type dropdown. Do not choose Video Recordings: that is not the Panopto tool
Canvas has made some updates this summer, and we want to let you know about them. As always, please reach out to ITG via the Emerson Help Desk or by calling x8090 if you have any questions or would like help setting up your courses. (For non-Emerson community members, please contact IT at your home institution for assistance.)
Missing/Late labels on submissions:
Missing and late assignments are clearly marked with icons in the Gradebook.
Completely automated; not yet possible to toggle these on or off.
Communication is key! If an assignment is optional or extra credit, tell students not to worry about the “Missing” icon on that assignment.
In the Speedgrader, these icons look like:
Your students will see this when they look at their grades:
For past usage, the Q icon was fine but only worked for English-speaking countries. (However, even in the English-speaking world, some users refer to quizzes as assessments or something else, so the Q icon wasn’t widely adaptable anyway.) Check mark icons are used for other design elements (and not all quizzes use check marks), so check mark wasn’t an option. And the lightning bolt was too negative. And a question mark couldn’t be used either because it conveys its own various meanings. Many other alternatives were probably considered.
So basically the team had to choose something positive that could translate into an idea supporting a variety of languages. The rocket ship was chosen because it represents the idea of moving forward and making progress, which is usually the goal of quizzes/assessments/enter your own terminology here.
Our design team knows that the Quizzes icon will not resonate with everyone, and depending a user’s perspective, the icon is going to seem confusing and controversial. Our team has been perfecting their use and styles over the last several months, not to mention what they look like in different sizes throughout all Canvas areas. We know icon changes are not easy (or change in general), so we’re glad that we now have an icon set that we own and won’t have to change repeatedly.
