Starting today, you can use Panopto in your D2L Courses. Panopto is a Video Content Management System that allows you to quickly and easily create, edit, and share videos with your class.

You can add videos hosted on Panopto to your course in three different ways:

Use the Add Existing Activities Tool. This will be the easiest and fastest way to add videos to your course module. It will add a link to the video you select that students can then click on to view the video.

Use the Insert Stuff Tool. The Insert Stuff Tool can be found anywhere the HTML Editor is such as Module Descriptions, Activity Descriptions, Discussion Threads, and so on. This will install a YouTube-like video player into the activity or description and allow students to watch the video by simply clicking on the Play button in the middle of the video.

The final way is to use the Panopto LTI Link. The LTI link will allow you to access the Panopto Dashboard and use advanced features of Panopto, like the Panopto Video Editor. If you choose, you can also direct your students to view videos from the LTI link rather than putting videos in individual modules or activities. Otherwise, simply hide the module if you want to use the LTI link for yourself.
