Copy recordings from one course to another

To copy multiple Panopto sessions from one course to another:

  1. Go to your Panopto Recordings folder in the Canvas course you want to copy from.
    Panopto recordings in Canvas course navigation
  2. Click the “Open in Panopto” button indicated by the arrow icon in the upper-right corner of the Panopto session list window.
    open panopto icon
    This will launch the full Panopto website in a new browser tab.
  3. Go to and read through Panopto’s detailed instructions on batch copying sessions from one folder to another. Note: Creators at the UW can batch copy recordings.

Keep in mind that each Canvas course has a corresponding Panopto folder, so if you are copying content to another Canvas course you will need to know the name of the Panopto folder for that course.  This usually follows the title the Canvas course was given when it was created.
