The new Panopto Assignment activity allows students to easily submit video or audio assignments via Moodle. It has been designed to be similar to a standard Moodle assignment, but does not yet include all the grading options of a standard assignment. Please follow the instructions on this page to access and grade Panopto assignments.

  2. Select Grade.
  3. To the right of the student whose assignment you want to view, select Grade.Note:
    You will not see links to student files.
    If a student has not made a submission, you will see No submission in the Status column.

    You can select the Last modified column heading to list submissions by date.

  • You can select Last modified (Grade) to display graded/updated or not graded assignments at the top.
  • Comment displays the first couple of words of the feedback.
  • Depending on your Panopto assignment settings, students may be able to resubmit new assignments until the cutoff date (if enabled).
  • Unlike standard Moodle assignments, from the Panopto assignment gradebook teachers can't return an assignment to draft so a student can resubmit, or grant extensions to individual students.
  • There are no override options in the Panopto assignment settings for individual students. You can use the assignment settings to extend the due date and allow resubmission for a specific time period, but this will apply to all students.
  • If you need help with resubmission or overrides, please contact CeTTL or drop in to an Ask Me Anything session.

Moodle and Panopto are unavailable every Thursday 7:00 am – 7:30 am.
