Due to their integration with Canvas, the default is using course folders. Also, instructors can put content in their My Folder (or sub-folders within their My Folder) and share the videos from there. Below we will outline the benefits and drawbacks of both and are meant to be used as general guidelines. Due to the highly subjective nature of any organizational system, it is recommended to set up a one-on-one consultation with Blake Ide in the CTL if you have any questions, special concerns, or needs.
When courses are created in Canvas, a course folder gets created in Panopto for them as well. This is a folder that pulls in the name of the course, and enrollments of the course (both faculty and students) to automatically give access to the users in the course.
Using the Course Folder option is recommended if you use the videos to your course for that course alone and do not share it with concurrent or future versions of the course.
All users in Panopto have a My Folder associated with their account. This folder works as the instructor’s space to organize any content. Instructors that use the My Folder for sharing videos to live courses typically create sub-folders based on the course being taught. For example, if an instructor teaches FYS-101, BIO-102, and CHE-201. They may have one sub-folder for each of those courses to collect the videos and keep them organized. Of course, they may also have sub-folders within each of those dealing with semesters taught or units within the course.
Using the My Folder option is recommended if you share videos across courses and/or terms or if you just want to be able to organize similar content videos in the same location.
Sharing videos from the My Folder (or more likely its sub-folders) is easy, but there are a few options to consider.
