Using video for Teaching and Learning

Are you interested in using video to enhance the learning experience of your students?

In Autumn 2018, UTS will be launching its video solution for teaching and learning. This tool will be built into UTS learning systems (UTS Online and Canvas), and will be available to all teaching staff and students.

  • Upload and publish videos for your subject in Blackboard or Canvas – this could be a welcome video, an instructional video, an interview with an industry representative – it’s totally up to you!
  • Manage and share your videos with colleagues and students – invite them to collaborate or just to view video content.
  • Track video engagement through analytics – find out which of your students has been watching, when and for how long!
  • Create video-supported learning experiences for students, like easy-to-create interactive quizzes.

Kaltura will make it easier for teaching staff and students to upload, manage and share videos in Blackboard and Canvas. Students can view videos on any device. The UTS tool is similar to YouTube and Vimeo, but the difference is that it can be managed from within UTS learning systems in a much more seamless way.

We are now looking for academic staff who are keen to try this exciting new tool. You will be given training and support, and invited to provide any feedback you may have on the experience.

If you have any questions, please contact Amy: amy.simpson-deeks@uts.edu.au.
