Video assignment tips

Multiple assignments

If you plan to have multiple assignments to be turned in over a semester, you may want to create subfolders in Panopto, and move the assignments into designated subfolders, to keep your video assignments separated.

Have students rename their files before submitting

Advise your students to rename their files with their last name and, if they have multiple assignments, add the assignment name to their video title as well. If you have a Moodle course, you will be able to see the students' video submissions there, but if you view the submitted files in Panopto, the default video title will use the filename they uploaded, which often does not contain any student names.
