Once your Panopto Capture recording is finished, navigate back to your Canvas browser tab.

    Select Video Embed Options to adjust your video width and height dimensions or aspect ratio. Allow Autoplay, Enable “Watch in Panopto”, Show Title, or Show Logo by checking the box.

  6. Your video will upload to the assignment page. Select Submit Assignment. You can include comments with your submission in the Comments field below the text editor. You can resubmit your assignment by clicking the Re-submit Assignment button if needed.
