Fall 2021 Notice
Panopto page in Blackboard
Having trouble viewing Panopto folders or videos embedded in your Blackboard course?
The following instructions should solve this problem:
Below you will find the procedure for setting up Zoom Cloud Recordings to automatically upload to your course folder in Panopto. This is considered to be most convenient and effortless method for sharing your Zoom recording to your students in your Blackboard course.
Step 1: Locate your unique "Blackboard Course ID"
You will need your unique Blackboard Course ID for your course (NOTE: this is not the same as your Course ID in SIS). The Course ID is a part of your Blackboard Course Page URL and is preceded by "course_id=". The format for the Course ID is "_xxxxxx_x", where exactly two underscores and seven numbers are apparent (Example course ID: _211403_1).
The Course ID can be found in one of two places:
Course Title URL in Blackboard
Your Course ID can be found by hovering over your course title located at the top of the Course Menu in Blackboard. In the very bottom of your browser window, a URL path should appear, which will contain the "course_id" parameter in the URL. Make note of the underscores and numbers that appear before the '&'. (Click screenshot below to see expanded view.)
Blackboard Course Site URL
Another method to find the Course ID is to look at your browser's address bar when viewing your Blackboard course site. Place your cursor in the address bar and arrow over until you find "course_id=". Then copy the underscores and numbers that appear before the '&' . (Click screenshot below to see expanded view.)
Step 2: Update your Zoom class meeting
Now that you have your unique Blackboard Course ID, go to your class' Zoom meeting, then click Edit to edit the meeting settings.
Make sure your Zoom meeting is set as a "Recurring Meeting". NOTE: It is ok to have your meeting Recurrence set to "No Fixed Time".
Scroll down to the "panopto_folder_context" field and enter the Course ID (from Step 1 above) exactly as it appeared in the URL. NOTE: The format for the Course ID should be "_xxxxxx_x" (Exactly two underscores and seven numbers with no spaces)
Save the meeting settings.
Step 3: Test that it works
Do a test by launching the meeting and recording to the cloud. NOTE: You can also set the meeting to record to the cloud automatically.
End the meeting after several seconds and you should get an email from Zoom that the cloud recording is ready.
Shortly after that, an email from Panopto saying that the Panopto copy of the recording is ready.
If you enable an audio transcript, it will show up as captions in Panopto.
If you save the chat messages in Zoom, they will show up in the "discussions tab" in Panopto (time-coded).
Please acknowledge the University's guidelines that recommend deleting recordings at the end of the semester if they include audio or video of students. For more information, please review the University's guidelines about recording lectures that may include video or audio of students. (Remember, Local recordings will not be automatically deleted.)
