2. Panopto Folder Organization in Canvas
2.1. In Panopto, all videos are organized into folders. When you open the course tool, you are taken directly to the folder that is automatically set up to store the videos for your course (Fig. 2). This folder is shared with everyone enrolled in the Canvas course. Instructors have access to create, modify, and share videos. Students only have access to search for and view videos. To share a video with students enrolled in the class, add it to this folder.

2.3. Though most of Panopto's features are available inside the course tool, you can open Panopto in its own browser tab by clicking the arrow icon located in the upper right corner (Fig. 3a). Full tab view makes it easier to manage videos across multiple course folders. To learn more about the Panopto Video Library and browsing content, please visit How to Navigate the Video Library.
