How do I provision Panopto in Blackboard?

These instructions were updated on 03/10/2016 as the “Recorded Sessions” link is now automatically added to all Blackboard courses and therefore doesn’t have to be created manually.

Each Blackboard course that you wish to use with Panopto needs to be provisioned separately.
You must be an instructor on these courses – so you may need to liaise with the module leader and your Faculty office to get yourself added as an instructor.

Activating your recorded sessions folder

Follow these four steps to activate your course for the semester.

  1. Click on the Recorded Sessions link in your Blackboard course
    The Blackboard course annoucements page. The page has no content. Recorded sessions is highlighted in the left hand menu
  2. Click on Configure
     This course is not provisioned with Panopto. Before a course can be used with Panopto it must be setup. Configure.
  3. Click on the Add Course to Panopto button
    Add course to Panopto. Some explaination text is visible, but unreadable
  4. A page will appear with the heading Provisioning results. The last line should read: Successfully provisioned course ID and Name of your course
    Most text is redacted. Course name, tutors, students on course. Last message is Successfully provisioned course [redacted]

Your course is now provisioned.

If you see any other message, or your course appears to already be provisioned with the previous year’s course information, please contact ServiceLine.
