need some help to understand if I am able to track the student if he/she is watching the video that I've embedded using HTML embed code, i.e. Youtube video?
Hello @Weiwen ...
Do you know if your school has purchased Canvas Studio from Instructure? (You'd see a "Studio" icon on the left-hand side global navigation menu within Canvas.) Studio allows you to gain "Insights" about the videos you embed in your course. You can tell who has watched a video (either one created on your own or one from YouTube). And, you can tell which parts of the video a student watched or skipped over. More information can be found here: How do I view user insights and analytics for medi... - Canvas Community.
I have also heard that Kaltura (a third-party product) also has this capability? But I've never used it before, so I'm not 100% sure on this.
I hope this helps a bit. Let Community members know if you have any other questions about this...thanks! Take care, stay safe, and be well.
