Subject: Global Campus Courses: We are Migrating Panopto For You!

Dear Global Campus Faculty,

Please note that the information provided in this communication is different than the communication you received from Information Technology Services (ITS) about migrating Panopto videos in non-Global Campus courses.

As part of the transition from Blackboard to Canvas, existing Panopto videos will be migrated from Blackboard to Canvas. This migration, scheduled for August, will make all Panopto videos available in Canvas for Fall 2021 and beyond. Please see below for the detailed timeline.

For your Global Campus courses, you do not need to worry about copying, moving, or downloading any Panopto content in Blackboard or Canvas. What follows is some important information regarding the transition and the various ways Global Campus’ staff will be available to support you.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Can I migrate all my videos manually prior to the system migration?

You do not need to take action. To minimize duplication of content, Global Campus staff will be addressing all Fall 2021 Global Campus courses.

I am an instructor who is using Canvas-Panopto and I do not need videos from Blackboard-Panopto. Am I impacted by this migration?

Yes. From Aug. 9 – 13, any videos that were created or uploaded in Canvas-Panopto (prior to Aug. 9) will not be available to view or edit, but you will be able to create or upload new videos.

On Aug. 14, 2021, all Canvas-Panopto videos will again be accessible through Canvas.

I am an instructor who is using Canvas in the Fall and I need Blackboard-Panopto videos from a course that was taught by another instructor. How do I get access to those videos?

Please make this request through Course Verification or email CourseVerification@wsu.edu and provide the Blackboard course ID to request permission to access the Panopto videos. This may require approval from the instructor or department.

My course is not taught Summer 2021 or Fall 2021. Do I need to take any action?

No. Global Campus will be addressing each course when it is delivered. No Panopto content will be lost.

The Panopto links within my Canvas course do not work after Aug. 25, 2021.

Please contact CourseVerification@wsu.edu for assistance and provide the Canvas Course ID and link details.

After the migration, I as an instructor have access to the Panopto videos, but students are getting a “Request Access” message.

Please contact CourseVerification@wsu.edu for assistance and provide the Canvas Course ID and link details.
