Using Rise 360 with Canvas
Kaltura is a cloud-based, enterprise-level multimedia platform for storing, streaming, creating and publishing video, video collections, and other media. While all of that’s useful for the work we do, it’s not what makes Kaltura a powerful tool for teaching and learning. Kaltura’s power lies within its Video Quiz feature, which allows you to use video to create active and engaging experiences for students right in Canvas.
Here are some highlights of the tool:
Last month, three of my fellow learning designers and I made a presentation at Penn State's Canvas Day on a realtively new innovation that we utilize in several online courses called the Course Content Selector, which is our Single-Page Display LTI.
What is LTI and what does it do?
When you copy an entire Canvas Course from one semester to another, course announcements also come over. It can be tricky to understand how these copied over announcements behave in your new course.

Anytime a new technology is adopted they the whole University, it takes a while for the tool to get spun up and used as it was intended. Kaltura is not different. ITLD is working hard to pull together complete training resources and Training Paths which will be distributed as soon as they are completed. We will be sure to inform everyone when that happens. Until that time, this blog post is available to give you just enough information to get started using Kaltura. It is lot complete guide, but is a resource to help you start to use Kaltura.
It is well documented that providing feedback to students is a powerful influence on student achievement. Feedback:
Canvas allows us to provide feedback to students with tools such as email, announcements, discussion forums, chats, conferences and assignment feedback through SpeedGrader (such as using rubrics, or comment boxes).
Every now and again, faculty receive letters from students who have some type of disability. Not all disabilities are physical, some are neurological and require that students be given extra time on quizzes, exams or any other assignment that is timed. The student works with the Office of Disability Services and is given a letter to share with their instructors to receive the accommodation outlined in the letter. Sometimes, you may need to give a student another attempt at an assignment for any number of reasons.
Compared to ANGEL, the Canvas Calendar has so much more utility. Highlights of some of the features in the Canvas Calendar include:
