Do you use video assignments in your class or are you thinking of adding them? If the answer is yes, ITS invites you to join us for our spring pilot of Arc, a new video platform that is an add-on to Canvas.
Arc allows you to manage and deliver video in a centralized location. You can easily add, organize and share videos among instructors and students. Students can comment right in the video timeline and the comment remains tied to that timestamp. Students can ask questions or instructors can point out key information in a video.You can include Arc videos anywhere that you can access the Canvas Rich Content Editor (assignments, discussions, pages, etc.).
You can also use Arc for assignments. It’s simple for your students to upload videos, and you can provide specific feedback right inside the timeline of the video, so there’s no confusion.
Arc also provides user analytics – as the class instructor, you can see how long each student has interacted with the video and you can review comments students post to determine where there might be questions that need to be clarified.
Please keep in mind that this is a time-limited pilot and Arc may not be available after the Fall 2017 semester. If you’re interested in participating, please sign up using this form. Space is limited!
