Create and Post Video to D2L

This page explores how you can create a Panopto video and post it to your D2L course either in a discussion, assignment, or quiz response.

Sometimes your instructor might want you to create a Panopto video and post it to a discussion post, assignment, or a quiz response within your D2L course. The instructions below will guide you through that process. This is only possible if your instructor has created a folder (called an Assignment folder) within the course Panopto folder. If the instructor has not created a Panopto Assignment folder for you to upload/record to, then the instructional steps below will not work. If you run into issues, that may be the main cause, and you will need to contact your instructor to have them create a Panopto Assignment folder for you to upload/record your video.
