Panopto: Annotating Video


If you have students upload video assignments you can also give them time stamped feedback right within their video!

To do this go to the video you would like to annotate, in the top left click on “discussion”, from here you can pause the video at each point you would like to give feedback on, type your comment in the text box and hit enter.

Important: anyone who has access to this video can see this feedback, in normal circumstances this is Ok because the video is only shared between the student and instructor. If students in your class can see each others videos you likely won’t want to give individualized feedback this way.

Please note that your students will not get an automatic notification that you have given them feedback. You will need to tell them to go back to where they uploaded their video in Panopto to view their video and then click on the discussion section in the top left to view your feedback.

Click on discussion just above notes. From here you can pause the video at each point you would like to give feedback on, type your comment in the text box and hit enter.
