Using Knowmia To Reduce Zoom Video Storage At San Juan College

Using Knowmia To Reduce Zoom Video Storage At San Juan College

Applicable Learning Management System(s): Canvas

Campaign Description: As more courses feature recorded online lectures, storage space both in your LMS and Zoom cloud are at a premium. San Juan College wanted to reduce the use of their Zoom cloud before it reached peak limits and utilized the Knowmia tool to upload videos to classes, edit videos, and provide captioning. However, they needed more support for the tool and to inform faculty, leading to their Knowmia Campaign.

Success Criteria: Increased adoption of Knowmia and decreased use of Zoom cloud storage

Submitted by (and on behalf of, if applicable): San Juan College
