Canvas Studio: Engaging Higher Education.

Canvas Studio is the next-generation video education platform for higher ed teaching and learning.

Break the fourth wall of video learning.

Canvas Studio turns passive viewing into active discussion between you and your higher ed students, whether you're in class, remote, or blended. Maybe it's more of a round table than a platform.

Turn Content into Conversation

Our instructors find it very useful to have so many capabilities in one platform. They can connect with students, share videos, share a screen, do demonstrations.

Not only can I see who watched a video, I can see how long they watched it. It provides me insights so I can know how this video is being used.

Gauge Understanding

Quizzes and grading, baked right in.

Canvas Studio makes it easy to incorporate instruction, assessments, and additional learning opportunities right within the video experience.

Create video quizzes and add questions to the timeline; have students answer them as they watch.

Give students instant feedback on their responses, and submit their grades to the Gradebook.

Watch student-submitted videos and offer inline comments.

Apply rubrics with SpeedGrader, and provide quick, personalized feedback on students' work.

Assign differentiated videos based on MasteryPaths.

Data and Analytics

1. Get analytics and insights.
2. Actually use them.

Find out who’s watching which videos and for how long. See overall class data (this can tell you more about the video), or look at student’s viewing details (this can tell you more about this student). Then use this data to inform your instruction and improve the learning experience.
