Gauge Understanding

Quizzes and grading. Within video. Without headaches.

Canvas Studio gives you so many ways to let students know you know what they know—through video.

Add questions to the timeline for students to answer as they watch.

Set up quizzes to instantly give kids feedback on their answers—and submit their grades to the Gradebook.

Watch videos students submit and make inline comments as you go.

Use SpeedGrader to apply rubrics and provide quick, targeted feedback on their work.

Assign videos based on differentiated learning paths.


Learning Insights

Activate eye-opening analytics and insights.

Find out who’s watching which videos and for how long. See overall class data at once or dig into each student’s viewing details. Then use this valuable data to decide how to engage students further.

The engagement analytics in Canvas Studio provide super helpful feedback, because if a student is saying they don’t understand a subject or standard, we have valuable insight into what pieces of content they are watching and which ones are just being clicked on.
