Embed a Panopto video into My Dundee

What is it?

In addition to uploading your video to your module’s channel in Panopto, you can also upload a specific video to your course content or embedded in a Blackboard Document.

What does it do?

Uploading your video directly into your course content allows you to organise your video content into the appropriate Learning Module or Folder so that it can be easily located by students. Having learning content inline with learning material is seen as good practise.

Some academics make the Panopto Video folder set to not visible to students so that the students do not get confused, they still populate the folder with there video content. Note having all relevant videos in the Panopto folder is needed when wanting to analyse the analytics at a module level
