Panopto CourseCast is a presentation capture application that lets you record, capture PowerPoint presentations; audio and video lectures and share these recordings in a Blackboard course.
Note: if you are having students to create presentations using Panopto make sure that you create a Drop Box folder (see Student Presentations tab below)
Panopto must be initially configured within Blackboard linking it to a Blackboard course. To "link" select Course Tools, Panopto Focus Content, Configure, and Add Course to Panopto Content. Click OK on the Provisioning Results Screen and click Submit.
Please note, if you plan on students creating and submitting their presentations using Panopto make sure that you create a Drop Box folder (see Student Presentations below).

Create a Panopto "Drop Box" to allow student recordings
As an instructor, you must first set up and configure your Blackboard course for Panopto. Directions on how to configure a Blackboard course for Panopto Lecture can be found here.
Once the course is “provisioned” for Panopto, you then create and share Panopto “Drop Box” folders that will allow students to download Panopto recorder, record and upload their lectures/presentations.
To create a Drop Box folder:
Make Panopto Recorder available to students
You also need to make the Panopto recorder download links available. There is no direct link for students in Blackboard, so you need to provide the download/installation information.
