Paper Pumpkin: Canvas Video Logs

Blog Post created by Champion on Oct 15, 2015

The example I have is from our nursing department.  Prior to Canvas, students in the practicums had to turn in daily  logs detailing the goings on of the day.  The students would record these logs with a phone, digital camera or even software installed on a laptop or tablet.  This was time consuming for the students and a headache for the instructors as they had to have a number of different video tools to watch these videos.


When we switched to Canvas, the nursing faculty loved the built-in video tool that you could use in assignments.  This made the creation of the daily video logs much more simple and removed the barrier of all the needed video recording software and playback software.
