Studio video timestamps

I want to make timestamps within the videos I upload to Studio, or record in Studio, so students can click to a specific part of the video when they need to.

Will Instructure add this feature?

Hi @rolinger ...

I'm not sure why this would be necessary with Studio videos.  In my own Canvas sandbox course, I have a Studio video on a content page.  In my screenshot here, although you cannot see my mouse cursor (which has changed to a hand cursor icon), I have placed my mouse cursor over the timeline of the video at the 7 minute 36 second mark.  Students can easily "scrub" through the video and click on any part of the video timeline to jump exactly to where you want them to.  If you want your students to go to specific parts of a video, I suggest you include some text above or below your video with these kinds of instructions.  For example, you can see where I had some instructions above the video in my example to "Watch this video tutorial".  You'll be able to use the Insights that the Studio interface provides to instructors to see if your students are watching those parts of the video.

I hope this will help a bit.  Let us know if you have any questions for Community members...thanks!
