Is there a way to track if a student has watched videos posted in Canvas?

I teach asynchronous online classes and would like to make sure my students are watching the videos I post.  Is there a way to monitor if Student A watched Video X?  I know I can see how much time a student has spent on Canvas but is there a way to know if they actually watched (or at least interacted with the page) that my video is embedded on? 

Thank you for any help!

Hi Meredith,

If your institution utilizes Arc, you'd be able to identify how much of the video was watched by your students.

Check out Arc | A Better Video Platform for Better Online Learning for more information.

Maybe you could be the force that gets your institution to use it! It's a great tool and all our UTK faculty love it!

Best,

Rosie

The only way I am familiar with is the Canvas Arc tool, that only works with videos that you upload to it or post YouTube videos with it.
