Canvas

Canvas is the newly-adopted learning management system for the Rollins community. Faculty and staff can use Canvas to create course content, discussion boards, quizzes, embedded media, and more.

Kaltura

Kaltura is our all-in-one video tool that allows you to upload, store, create, share, and trim videos.

Kaltura My Media is the space where you can upload and store videos for use in any course through the external tools option in Canvas's Rich Content Editor. Once you upload videos to your My Media, you can embed them in multiple Canvas courses. You can also add faculty, staff, and students as collaborators to co-edit and/or co-publish videos.

Within Kaltura is a tool called Personal Capture that allows you to create a screen recording, webcam recording, voice only recording, or a combination of these. This tool is helpful in recording narrated PowerPoints and embedding them in a Canvas course.

WebEx

Rollins uses a web conferencing tool called WebEx, which can be used for synchronous activities. This tool allows for broadcasting real-time audio and video, desktop sharing, sharing presentation slides, or demonstrating any online resources.

WebEx allows you to connect with your students for online office hours or special study sessions designed to help prepare them for a test, connect with your colleagues for professional development webinars or committee meetings, invite special guests to your classroom by sending them an invitation link to the session, and broadcast a live event or lecture for the students that can’t be onsite.
