Copying Your Panopto Recordings: Home

Why can I no longer access my older recordings?

When you login to Panopto using your D2L Brightspace credentials, a brand new Panopto account is automatically created. This new account may not have full access to your older recordings from Blackboard Learn.

If you wish to copy your Blackboard Learn recordings over to a Panopto folder in Brightspace, your new Panopto account will need to be granted access to your Blackboard Learn recordings.

Send a request to help@downstate.edu to request access. Remember to include the specific course numbers and titles of the folders you wish to access.

Transferring sessions from Blackboard Learn to Brightspace

Panopto now allows you to login using your D2L Brightspace user name and password, whereas previously, you logged in using your Blackboard Learn credentials. 

One caveat of this new method of login, is that you may no longer see your older courses from Blackboard Learn listed in Panopto.

Note: If you need access to your previous course recordings restored, send a request to help@downstate.edu. Make sure to include the course number (e.g., BIOS 1234), title and semester code (e.g., Fa22) of all courses you need to access.

Copying Entire Course Folders

If you have access to your older course folders in Panopto, it's possible to copy the entire contents over to your new course folder in one step.

Log into Panopto and enter the course folder you wish to populate with sessions from a previous semester. Click on the Settings icon settings icon for the folder at the top-right of the window.

In the dialog box that appears, scroll down to the Course Video Copy section.

Click the option Choose source folder, and browse for the folder containing the videos you wish to copy over. Click Begin folder copy to start the transfer process (this may take a few minutes to complete).

Note: If you need access to your previous course recordings, send a request to help@downstate.edu. Make sure to include the course number(e.g., BIOS 1234), title and semester code (e.g., Fa22).

Copying Individual Sessions

Panopto makes copying (or moving) one or more individual sessions into your course folder very easy.

Login into Panopto and browse to the folder containing the session(s) you which to copy. 

Mouse over the session you wish to copy and select the checkbox that appears to the top-left corner of the thumbnail image. You can select multiple sessions.

Choose the folder you wish to transfer the sessions to from the dropdown menu that appears. 

Note: You must be registered as a Creator for both the folder you are copying from and the folder you are copying to. If you need access to your previous course recordings, send a request to help@downstate.edu. Make sure to include the course number(e.g., BIOS 1234), title and semester code (e.g., Fa22).
