Collaaj, an enterprise and educational video company, is pleased to announce a certified partnership with Instructure, a leading software-as-a-service (SaaS) technology company that is the maker of the Canvas learning management system (LMS). By becoming a certified partner with Instructure, Collaaj can now can offer its unique multi-stream lecture capture & flipped learning solution to educational institutions using the Canvas LMS.
Faculty can log into Canvas, just click a button to launch the lecture capture application, and record screen captures and presentation captures—along with multiple simultaneous cameras—and seamlessly edit and publish these multi-stream videos directly back into Canvas. Collaaj can be used to record long format lectures, or quick short videos explaining various topics in a course, in keeping with the spirit of flipped learning. Students can then log into Canvas and watch all of their course lectures. Collaaj’s unique PowerPoint indexing capability enables in-video search to find the text within PowerPoint slides, including speaker notes. Recordings can be performed in classrooms or on personal Windows or Mac computers. Integration is a snap, and it takes just a few minutes to set up.
Collaaj co-founder Aditya Kadambi says, “Videos are truly the ‘documents’ of this generation and are a great way to increase the learning and retention rates in school. With most modern institutions, adopting some form of video creation and sharing, integrating video capture and streaming directly into LMS can truly provide the best learning experience for both faculty and students. Now, they only need to learn to use one tool - their favorite LMS. Canvas serves millions of users from more than a thousand educational institutions throughout the world. With its modern interface, Canvas has set a new standard for open technology in K-12 as well as higher education.”
“We are thrilled to have Collaaj integrate their unique multi-stream lecture capture and flipped learning solution into Canvas,” said Melissa Loble, VP of Partners & Programs for Instructure. “We welcome Collaaj as a Certified Canvas partner. This partnership will enable higher education institutions to record PowerPoint presentations with text indexing, including screen captures as well as multiple simultaneous camera inputs, and manage all of their videos right from Canvas. The integration is very elegant and I am sure will be welcomed by our customers!”
