Before the pandemic, our new community of practice was bringing new and creative ideas to staff and academics for educational video. On July 23rd, we came back in full force with our third meet-up, focusing on Video Assessments & Interactive Video. Be sure to watch the recording below to see it all!

Sneak peek of the new Kaltura Assignment Workflow

Things kicked off with Phil Betts giving us an exciting sneak peak at a brand new Kaltura workflow that makes video assessments a lot easier. This new method is currently available in Blackboard and will be coming to Canvas within the next few weeks. Learn more about this process:

Interactive videos using H5P

Next up, Nat Fay spoke about H5P Interactive Video and understanding the optimal situations to take advantage of it. You can watch the presentation below – and if you’d like to learn more about how to use H5P, be sure to check out this great guide.

Using Microsoft Stream for Video Assessments

Coming back around to video assessments, Amanda White closed off the event with an interesting and experimental approach. Amanda runs a class through Microsoft Teams, and has her students submit video assessments via Microsoft Stream. While this isn’t a recommended or supported approach by the LX.lab, I think it’s pretty cool! During the video, Amanda mentions a video about how to upload to Microsoft Stream, you can view that here.

We had a great time and would like to thank everyone for coming. For those interested in attending our next event in August, you can register for the fourth instalment of the UTS Video Meet-Up below.
