Create Video Content | Student

This article addresses various ways of creating video content. You can 'create content' with Panopto or other recording software of your choice (e.g., built-in recorder on your computer/mobile device, Zoom, etc.). Review the following scenarios to determine what works best for your situation.

Use Panopto Capture

To use Panopto Capture to create content, follow these steps:

  1. Access Panopto.
  2. After Panopto loads, click the Assignments subfolder. Look for "[Assignments...]" either at the beginning or end of the folder name.
  3. Before getting started, please refer to the How to Create a Video Using Panopto Capture for specific settings (e.g., sharing PowerPoint or microphone).
  4. Click the green Create button and select Panopto Capture (Record in Browser). You may need to grant access to your video/audio capture devices when using Panopto Capture.
  5. Click the red circle to start your recording. The program will give you a countdown when to start.
  6. Click the red square to stop recording. 
  7. You will see various messages as the recording is processed. Do not close the Panopto browser tab/window.
  8. After processing, re-title your video by replacing the time/date stamp to the right of the video with the title suggested by your instructor (e.g., first & last name, project title). 
  9. Proceed to: Share your Content.

Watch an example: This recording demos how to record a Panopto video through your browser and access the hyperlink for your video that can be pasted into a discussion board or assignment (i.e., Share your Content).

 

Use other recording applications

To use other recording apps, follow these steps:
  1. Record your video using a recording app of your choice.
    1. Follow the software manufacturer's instructions or other help documentation to create your content.
    2. Important: Due to the numerous video options available, Drake ITS cannot support all possible solutions. We recommend using an application that is familiar and comfortable to you.
  2. Determine what end product your recording app generated — a hyperlink or a file (MP4 or MOV).
    1. If the recording results in a hyperlink, that is what you will share in a discussion, for example (i.e., Share your Content). This is your final step.
    2. If the recording generates an MP4 or MOV, Access Panopto where you will upload your MP4 or MOV. Do NOT upload any MP4s or MOVs directly to Blackboard.
  3. After Panopto loads, click the Assignments subfolder. Look for “[Assignments]” either at the beginning or end of the folder name.
  4. Click the green Create button and select Upload Media. 
  5. Drag and drop the video file(s) or click inside of the box to select the file(s) from your computer. Wait for Uploading to finish, which may take a while based on the size and number of files.
  6. After processing, re-title your video by replacing the time/date stamp to the right of the video with the title suggested by your instructor (e.g., first & last name, project title). [OR] Hover over the title of your uploaded file to bring up icons allowing you to change the Settings, Share, or Delete your video. Select Settings to change the video title to include any recommendation by your instructor. 
  7. Proceed to Share your Content.

 

Virtual

To record a group presentation virtually, Panopto is not a recording option. 

Instead, use a videoconferencing option(s) provided by your instructor (i.e., Class Collaborate or Zoom) or one of your choice. 

  1. Record your video. Here are some resources to help you get started:
    1. Getting Started with Collaborate Ultra Web Conferencing (How-to)
    2. About Zoom (FAQs)
  2. Determine what your recording app generated — a hyperlink or a file (MP4 or MOV).
    1. If the recording results in a hyperlink, that is what you will share in a discussion, for example (i.e., Share your Content). This is your final step.
    2. If the recording generates an MP4 or MOV, Access Panopto where you will upload your MP4 or MOV. Do NOT upload any MP4s or MOVs directly to Blackboard.
  3. After Panopto loads, click the Assignments subfolder. Look for “[Assignments]” either at the beginning or end of the folder name.
  4. Click the green Create button and select Upload Media. 
  5. Drag and drop the video file(s) or click inside of the box to select the file(s) from your computer. Wait for Uploading to finish, which may take a while based on the size and number of files.
  6. After processing, re-title your video by replacing the time/date stamp to the right of the video with the title suggested by your instructor (e.g., first & last name, project title). [OR] Hover over the title of your uploaded file to bring up icons allowing you to change the Settings, Share, or Delete your video. Select Settings to change the video title to include any recommendation by your instructor. 
  7. Proceed to Share your Content.
