Different Layout Templates

There are 5 unique layout options to display your presentation:

  • Inherited (default) is based on what is set by the parent course, organization, or system.
  • Large Video displays a large video window and a smaller notes section.
  • Audio Only displays the slides, notes, and chapters. No video window is displayed.
  • Video Only displays a large video only, without slides, notes, or chapters.
  • Small Video displays a small video window, larger slide window, notes, and chapters.

Adding Chapter Points

Chapter points are simply created by assigning a topic or chapter title to a particular time stamp. The chapter points appear in the chalkboard for the user to keep track of the topics throughout the video or presentation. The user can then click on a particular point and skip to that section of the video.

Manage Your Media

Managing your media is easy! Upload audio or video with a click of a button. If you are uploading slides, there are several options to choose from:

  • Create a new slide using the slide editor
  • Create a new slide from an external site
  • Upload image from your local computer
  • Upload a zip file of images from your local computer
  • Convert a PowerPoint Presentation into slides

Adding Checkpoints

If you would like reassurance that your user is watching the entire video or presentation, you can create checkpoints. These are simple pop-up questions that pause the video, and the user must answer in order to continue watching. Choose from a button, password, true/false, or multiple choice checkpoint. All checkpoints are completely customizable and also have the option to “reset” the chalkboard if the user answers incorrectly.
