Building Block

Panopto's Building Block now enables: single sign-on, course provisioning, rolling synchronization for user access, and immediate video viewing.


Adding the Panopto course tool to a Blackboard course will create a folder in Panopto which stores all Panopto videos for that course. Additionally, each course will get its own folder.

Panopto’s free Blackboard integration brings video directly to the Blackboard interface. Instructors can add and manage their video files inside their familiar Blackboard classroom folders. And each live webcast and on-demand recording can be linked or embedded as Blackboard classroom content, where students can watch on any laptop or mobile device.

When users access Blackboard through the course tool or embedded videos, they are automatically signed into Panopto. Instructors are given Creator access in Panopto which allows them to record, edit, and change video settings. Students are given Viewer access and can view videos. The Sharing Settings are synced with the Blackboard course enrollment, so students are automatically able to access the correct videos if they add or drop a course.
