Your submission point often will be located in the Assessment and Marks area of a module, and will details the six steps required for a successful video submission. An example screenshot below shows these six steps:
This page will cover the six steps in more detail to assist you with your submission
This step requires you to upload your finished video file to Panopto, or use Panopto to create a recording.
*If you have recorded your audio/video file on a mobile device, please see our specific guidance on mobile devices at the bottom of this page.
Panopto can be used to record a combination of your webcam, microphone and screen. More details on using Panopto to record can be found here
Firstly open your personal Panopto folder. You can do this by clicking the link within the instructions for assignment submission point
This will open your Panopto personal folder. To upload a recording, click the Create button and select the Upload button (2). Alternatively, to create a Panopto recording, you can choose 'Record a new session' (1), download the Panopto software and follow the instructions here
Once you have selected Upload Video, you will see a screen requesting you upload a file.
You can either drag and drop your video file into the ‘dotted line’ area of the window, or click on it, and it will let you navigate your computer in the normal fashion. Find the file on your computer and click Open.
A loading bar will appear, you must wait for the bar to reach 100% and the screen to change
Once you’ve added your video, it will take some time to process the file. The word 'processing' will be displayed. Just wait. You can continue on without waiting for this processing to finish, however you wont be able to check your video before submission.
Once it’s done, you can see the video is now ready to be submitted.
Continue to Step 2 below.
Once you have completed the upload to Panopto in Step 1, go back to My Studies and find the submission point.
Click the submission point link
You'll again see the six steps you are following (1) , you will need to click on the Write Submission button (2)
If you don’t see a mash up button, you will need to expand your menu at this point. You should only have to do this once, and it will remember from now on. Click on the double arrow to expand the menu.
Now you can see the mashup button, click on it (1), and choose the Panopto Student Video Submission option (2). DO NOT CLICK ON PANOPTO VIDEO ALONE, this will result in a submission error!
A window will open to show the videos in your personal folder. If your video is located in a different folder, select the correct folder from the drop-down at the top.
You will be taken to your Panopto My Folder which has your video ready to be submitted. Tick the radio-button next to the video you wish to submit for assessment
Once you’ve selected the video, you need to scroll down the page, as the submit button is ‘hidden’ down lower on the page.
Then you can see that your video has been attached to the Submission Point. If you’re certain that you have attached the correct video, and you are ready to submit your assessment. Click on Submit
You will now see your successful submission, and a purple success bar will appear at the top of the page. If you are done, you can click Ok. And you are finished submitting! Note you will recieve an email receipt with a unique confirmation number relating to your submission.
