Online Academic Technology Help
Our Online Academic Technology Help features resources and a chat window for anyone that needs just-in-time help completing their work remotely. If you need more help than can be answered in our chat window, we can start a Zoom session that automatically starts as a screen share. At the current time, we are staffing the chat Monday through Friday, Noon – 5 PM, but if we aren’t here, submit a question and we will get back as soon as we are available.
Canvas Studio is a communication tool that allows instructors and students to actively collaborate through video and audio media.
Studio’s interface lets students and instructors engage with media content by commenting directly on the media timeline. Students can learn from each other’s insights as well as from the instructor’s direction and feedback.
Media owners can also view media engagement through user analytics. Unlike other media sites, Studio analyzes views on a per-user basis.
Studio integrates with Canvas for a seamless learning experience. Studio media can be embedded in the Rich Content Editor, which is available in multiple feature areas including Assignments, Discussions, and Pages.
