How do I upload a video on my computer to Panopto / Blackboard

If you wish to rollover your content each year then you should upload the video on the Panopto website. Videos uploaded into a specific Blackboard course will only be viewable by students on that year’s course.
  • Click on the “Create” button
If your Blackboard doesn’t look like the picture above, click here
  • From the list that appears, select “Upload media”


  • Drag a video or audio file into the dotted area


  • Click within the dotted area with the words “Drag video or audio files here”
  • From the window that appears navigate to the video file
  • Select the video file and press “Open”

Your video will now upload. Depending on the length of the media file, it may take a few minutes to a few hours for the video to process. You may also edit the name of the media file while it is uploading.

Important note: You must not close the window until the page says “Upload complete. You can close this window now.”
