Creating an Assignment Folder

1.1.  Navigate to your module folder in Panopto. You can view all the folders you have access to by clicking Browse (on left hand side menu) and expanding the ‘Moodle’ folder (click the little sideways triangle on its left), which will contain all Panopto folders from Moodle (see Fig 1 below). Click on a folder in this list to open it.

1.4. An assignment folder will be created immediately. It will be named the same as the module folder, but with [assignments] at the end of the folder title (see Fig 4). This is helpful in identifying assignment folders from regular folders.

Alternatively, you can access the assignment folder contents by clicking on the folder itself (see Fig 5).
