How do I submit a video for assessment?

This Student FAQ explains why and how to provide a link to a video you have created as part of an assessment. Instead of uploading a video submission you will upload your video recording into Panopto and then share this via a Blackboard Assignment. 

How to create videos using Panopto

  • All students have access to the University managed Panopto software (record in the browser or download the app) 
  • Login to Panopto using your student email - you may need to verify with MFA (do not use personal email account)
  • Options to either create a screen recording for a presentation or upload any other media recording (File types: AVI, MP4, MPG, WMV, MOV, QT, ASF, 3GP, WMA, MP3, M4V).
  • When your video is processed an email will be sent to you for reference, with links for you to play, edit and share.
  • It is best to go to the assignment link, to submit your recording described below:
