Troubleshooting problems accessing Panopto via Blackboard


Potential issues

I. Activity Stream is displayed after clicking ‘Panopto Video’ link in a Blackboard Course

  • While Panopto Support is investigating the issue, users can still access the Panopto system directly at using CUHK Login; then search for the course video folder:
    1. Open a browser and access
    2. In the same browser, open a new tab, and enter
    3. Select “Blackboard” and click “Sign in”.
    4. Click “Browse” to locate the course video folder and the videos. You can type and search the course in the search box, or expand the folder named “Blackboard” to find the Panopto folder.

II. "Error getting the folder from the Panopto server. It may have been deleted."

III. “This session link is invalid”

  • The following may help to work around the issue.  Chrome/Edge users report this issue more often than Firefox users.
    1. Clear all browser cache and temporary internet files, including site data
    2. Sign in the Panopto Cloud system at first, then open a new tab to access the Blackboard course and recheck the videos.
  • If the issue persists, please provide us with the Course ID, the name and the location of the item(s) at ITSC Service Desk or for the follow-up.
