Enable download of Panopto (Course Videos) recordings for students

By default, videos in Panopto are not downloadable by students. Creators (those in Canvas with the roles of Teacher, Course Admin, or Teaching Assistant) can manually adjust the download setting to be available to students on three levels: Main course folder, a specific subfolder or only specific videos.

  1. Click on the Course Videos (Panopto) tab. This will reveal your main course folder. Click on the cog icon in the upper right.

By default this will be set to Admins, Videographers and Creators Only. Select Authenticated Users with Access to enable downloads for students.
