There are a number of reasons why you might want to create secondary Panopto folders for your course including:

  • Organizing Videos by topic or date
  • Hiding videos from students


Follow the steps below to make your own secondary folders:

1.  Log in to the Moodle course where you added a Panopto block.

2.  Scroll down to the Panopto block.

3.  Under Links, Click on Course Settings.

Panopto Block: Course Settings.

4.  The first page is always the Settings page. Click the X in the upper right corner to close this page. Closing the window will show the Panopto Home Screen.

5.  Click Add Folder at the top of the Panopto Home Screen (any pre-existing Folders will be listed in the same location).

Add Folder

6.  Enter a Name for the new folder.

Enter Name

7. Once the subfolder has been created, click on it to enter the subfolder

Note: You can always leave the subfolder by clicking the up arrow near the Refresh button.

8. Videos can now be moved into this subfolder or created in this subfolder as needed.
