Canvas Studio is an online video platform integrated with Canvas that lets students and instructors engage with video content by commenting directly on the video timeline. Students can learn from each other’s insights as well as from the instructor’s direction and feedback. Additionally the service provides an in situ quizzing system allowing instructors to assess student understanding during the video.
Canvas Studio’s asset management automatically organizes your videos, so instructors can find the content they need easily. Analytics allow instructors and administrators to quickly and easily determine which videos students are watching, for how long, and when they stop. This information allows instructors to optimize videos to communicate critical information more effectively and monitor student behavior.
Canvas Studio has the ability to display YouTube videos without the commercials and pop-up ads making the use of these videos more efficient and effective.
March 2020 Update: Due to current demand, the process for asking ITS to digitize video has changed. Please create a Help Desk ticket here: ITS Help Desk, login with your Deerfield username and password, and ask us to “digitize content to be uploaded to Canvas Studio”. Thank you for your help at this busy time.
