What is the issue?

WSU is working with Panopto to complete a system migration that will transfer existing Panopto videos from Blackboard to Canvas. This migration will result in all Panopto videos available in Canvas beginning Fall 2021.

When is the migration?

The migration is scheduled for the month of August, just prior to Blackboard’s decommissioning on August 21. Please see below for the detailed timeline.
