Is there a way to disable comments for an Arc video?
Hi Luc Van Cauwenberge...
I wasn't able to find anything in Arc that let me completely turn off the ability to comment on a video. I could, however, delete individual student comments when signed in as an instructor. Take a look at this Guide for more details: How do I manage Arc media comments in Canvas as an instructor? Hope this helps.
You can disable comments by embedding a video into your content: How do I get a public link or embed code for media in an Arc account?
However, the tradeoff is that public links and embed codes do not require authentication, so they do not track analytics.
Hope that helps,
I am looking at the work flow for students using Arc as a discussion reply. When embedding the video to a discussion reply the Arc comments are on by default. As such, students (and instructors) can reply to the discussion post within the Canvas discussion and also within the Arc video.
Not wanting to have both means of reply I was leaning toward not allowing threaded replies within the Discussion board settings so students will reply via the Arc interface. But if I do this, then I am uncertain if I can see all of a students participation within the Speedgrader. It may be that when Arc is used in Discussions, that it would be better if Arc comments were off by default. I say this as I imagine most students will miss the disable comments button. I suppose this depends on your goals and if you need to account for student participation with replies/ comments.
