Most Common Student Questions

Why can’t I download the Panopto app on my laptop?

Apple has a security setting that may be disabling your ability to download Panopto from Blackboard. In “System Preferences,” change the security to “Anywhere.” After installing Panopto, you may reverse this setting.

When can I see my Panopto video?

Currently, Panopto has users upload their videos before they are visible. The only exception is that on some Macbooks you can see your video before you upload it.

How do I upload my video inside Panopto?

After recording your video, click on “Upload.” Keep your device awake, and internet connected until the upload is completed.

Why didn’t my video upload inside Panopto?

Your Internet connection was probably disconnected or perhaps you signed off your computer before the video uploaded to Panopto. You can try uploading the video a second time but if this is unsuccessful, you will need to record your video again.

How do I know my professor got my video assignment?

Navigate to your Blackboard course "Tools" > "Panopto Content" > click on the assignment folder you uploaded into. Your professor received your video assignment if you see your video in that folder.
