Canvas Engagement - FastTrack Video Series
What is the Canvas FastTrack Video Series?
Since Canvas was founded, in 2011, administrators have taken many different approaches to how they rollout Canvas at their institutions. There is not one perfect "one size fits all" way for everyone to implement Canvas and garner the attention and engagement to which most aspire.
The "Canvas FastTrack Video Series" is a quick video guide for teachers to help with the alignment of Canvas tools with SAMR and the ways to perpetually increase user engagement! For the next 40 days we will present a new 2 1/2 minute video to the Community starting with the Substitution level of SAMR. Everyone is encouraged to reply and share their personal insight, experiences, and advice.

These are useful and quick videos and exactly a strategy I often recommend to instructors to inform and engage students in their online courses. Thank you to the folks who are working on these!
I agree, the videos are very nice! The short videos are a great length to engage users and open the conversation on a topic. It would be nice if we were able to grab the embed code of these videos so we add them easily into Canvas pages. It was something that can be done with the Canvas Guide videos in Vimeo, but I don't see the options with these.
Thanks and keep up the good work!
These are great, @lstark !
Could you please upload your captions to YouTube? Right now it is "auto-generated" which won't allow us to use these for our 113 colleges.
If you aren't able to caption these, can we download the videos and upload them to our own YouTube account with captions we type out?
Hi @teraulbert ,
Thanks for the feedback! I will reach out to our Social Media department about captioning on YouTube, in the meantime, feel free to download them and share them on your own YouTube Channel with Captioning. In the spirit of openness here at Instructure, the more visibility the better. I believe our YouTube delay is about a week.
This is fantastic! Nice, short, to-the-point videos that my colleagues can access and they are all in one place. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
