How do I embed a Panopto video on a Lessons page?

Updated Jul 20, 2021

A special feature of the Lessons tool allows Instructors to embed a Panopto video directly on the page.

If you are using the default share settings in Panopto, students will need to authenticate their account for your course before accessing a recording in the Lessons tool. See How do I authenticate my Panopto account for a Sakai Site? for instructions.

First, locate and copy the Panopto video embed code.

  1. Hover your cursor over the recording and select Share.
  2. Select the Embed tab.
  3. Uncheck the Enable 'Watch in Panopto' box.
  4. Select Copy Embed Code.

Go to Lessons.

Select on the Lessons Page Title (e.g. Week One) in the Tool Menu to display the page.

Note: The default or blank Lessons page contains text and images that explain the basic functionality of the Lessons tool.

Select Add Content, then Embed Content on Page.

From the Add Content drop-down menu, select Embed content on page. This displays the Embed Content dialog box.

Paste the embed code.

  1. Paste the Panopto embed code into the box marked Or add a URL or "embed code".
  2. Select Save.

Review content and select save.

Preview your content in the Embed Content on Page dialog box. Select Save again.

View updated video on page.

Select Edit. (Optional)

This displays the Edit Multimedia dialog box.

Add a description.

1. Enter a description in the Item Description text box.

2. To change the URL or embed code (if needed), select Change File or URL.

3. Select Save.
