Copying Panopto recordings to other module sites


Panopto recordings can be copied manually to other courses, so other student cohorts have access to the recordings they need.

Quick Start Guide

  1. Go to your module site in Blackboard Ultra.
  2. Click on the Replay Lecture Capture (Panopto) link on your VLE Course Content page.
  3. In the Panopto folder, hover your cursor over the recording you want to copy.
  4. Check the box that appears in the top-left hand corner of the video thumbnail as shown below (A).
  5. To select multiple videos, check the select-all/none check box as shown above (B).
  6. Click Copy.
  7. Search for the module code (eg: ENG00001I) or VLE site code (eg: Y2023-000001), or navigate through the folders using the dropdown menu.
  8. Click Copy.
  9. Your video(s) will then be copied over to the associated VLE module site.
  10. To copy recordings to multiple sites, repeat the above steps as many times as needed.


By default, when a recording is copied, a "Reference Copy" is created meaning that any edits you make in the original recording will also be reflected in the copies you have made.
