Panopto Updates Video Platform with Canvas Gradebook Integration
- By Dian Schaffhauser
The latest version of the Panopto video management platform now includes integration with Instructure Canvas Gradebook as well as customizable playlists. The update was announced during Instructure's recent customer conference, InstructureCon, which took place in Keystone, CO.
The Panopto platform allows schools to manage, livestream, record and share videos across the organization.
The gradebook integration allows instructors to add Panopto quizzes to their learning management system assignments and see the results in their gradebooks. Students can also view quiz results from within Canvas. Panopto users can add quiz questions with multiple choice, true/false and multi-select questions to a video at any point during the presentation.
People who create or administer videos can also now group course related material, no matter where the videos are located, and share those playlists from within Panopto or embed them in other web portals.
The updated software is available to existing Panopto customers as part of their licensing.
The video platform integrates with other LMSes too, including Blackboard, D2L Brightspace, Moodle and Sakai.
Among the school systems that have used Panopto are Cobb County School District in Georgia, Cornwall-Lebanon School District in Pennsylvania and Weber School District in Utah.
