Need a private sandbox for creating and sharing videos?

‚ÄčMy Folder is always at the top of the Folder list on the left.

You cannot share My Folder itself, but you can share sessions and folders within it. If you try to share My Folder currently, you will receive the Personal folder can't be shared error message.

Faculty and Staff have the option to request Automated recordings through IT. The best practice for automated recording are when you want to record in the same room on multiple occasions. For example, if you teach or have a recurring meeting in a room where Panopto audio and/or video capabilities are available, you can request that these dates and times automatically get recorded and posted in Canvas.

Check to see if your class or meeting is a room that has Panopto recording cababilities (click the PDF link and find rooms labeled "Capture"). Once you have determined that you can schedule a Panopto recording by creating an IT case. 

When you provision your Canvas course for Panopto, students are set up automatically as Viewers. They must be set up as Creators in Panopto in order to be able to download the recorder and submit content for the course. The easiest way to set students as Creators through the Canvas integration is through the use of assignment folders.
