Contributing to a Video Discussion

Step 1

Find the Discussion where you wish to contribute. Select REPLY.

Step 2

Choose the green Panopto Video icon to launch Panopto, SAIS’s contracted video-recording software. A pop-up window will appear.

Step 3

Choose RECORD to record a new video. The select LAUNCH CAPTURE to record your video directly from your browser.

Step 4

A new tab will open in your browser. The new tab will display Panopto Capture, which is the software you will use to record your video. Verify and/or select your audio and video inputs. Under SCREENS AND APPS, you can choose whether you wish to record your screen.

When you have chosen your desired inputs, select the red circle to begin recording. 

Step 5

When you are finished making your video, select the red circle again to end recording. You will then see the screen in the image below. From this screen, you can view, edit, or redo the video if you wish. You can also change the title of the video, which, by default, will be the date and time of the recording.

IMPORTANT: Do not change the folder where the video is stored. If you do, your instructor and classmates will not be able to view the video.

When you are satisfied with the video, simply close the tab on your browser. You do not need to SHARE or SEND the video. 


Step 6

Return to the browser tab where you have Canvas open.  The video should appear in the pop-up window. (Note: It may take a few seconds to appear.)  Select INSERT to add your video to the Rich Content Editor of your Discussion post.  

Step 7

Add text to your Discussion post if you wish. When you are finished, select POST REPLY.
