Reusing recordings from a previous year

Panopto recordings made during the previous academic year are in an archive folder and not visible to students.  You can choose to make these recordings visible to students, as long as the content is still up-to-date.

The best way to make last year's recordings available to students is to copy them into this year's list of recordings and then change the settings to make them available.

Copy recordings out of the Archive folder

  1. Open your Blackboard course and click on the 'Reflect' Recordings or Panopto Video option in the left-hand menu.
  2. Click on the Archive folder to open it.

  5. Click Copy at the top of the screen.

  6. Choose the folder to copy to from the list at the top of the screen.  This will be the main folder for your module.
  7. Click the green Copy button.  This will copy the selected recordings out of the Archive folder and into the main list of recordings for the module.

Make the copied recordings available to students

  1. Go back to your Blackboard course site and click the 'Reflect' Recordings option in the left-hand menu.
  2. You will see your copied recordings in the list.  Move your mouse over each one, and choose Publish.
