Creating a Video Discussion Assignment

When to Use?

If you would like your students to view each other’s videos for peer review/feedback, you will need to set up a discussion topic for students to post to. This article will walk you through the steps of creating a discussion area for your students to submit to.

This article is meant for instructors. If you are looking for information on how to use Panopto as a student, please refer to out Student Panopto Knowledge Base.
