Add a tool for screencast and flipped learning

Flipped learning is a great way to use itslearning in education. But it lacks some kind of tool for making screencast, more than using a webcam. A screencast tool would be great to use for:

  • Flipped learning
  • Formative assesment
  • Instructions
  • Possibilty to share and rate recordings for assignments

    Hi,

    Thanks for the idea and all the votes. Screencasts can absolutely be a good pedagogical tool! There are however, technical obstacles that makes it hard to fit such tools in a LMS. Mette Marie touched upon one of them; the file size. For now, you will have to use 3th party tools and upload the files to itslearning, or link to files outside the platform. If you come across a screencast tool with LTI support you can ask your local admin to make it available in itslearning.

    Since you mentioned flipped classroom I would just like to mention that we are working on implementing a new sound/video recorder based on WebRTC (Web Real-Time Communication) which does not need Flash installed. We are also updating our existing online "Flash-based" media recorder to work better with devices that support Flash. This means more support on more devices for recording sound and video, and a great tool for flipped classroom. Please follow our roadmap for the latest release estimates (we update the roadmap approx. once a month):

    It's great that itslearning has integrations with Zoom, Teams ad Hangouts, but none of them can make screen recordings. They are all live meeting tools. This idea is not solved.

    We now have integrations with Zoom, MS Teams and Google Hangouts. Please talk to your local itslearning administrator about these options.

    FlipGrid is a great option for this. The Grids can be embedded in the rich text editor. We have some teachers using this function very effectively.

    Besides... it takes forever to upload the MP4 files to each student when you correct essays with screencast-O-Matic... If I could make the recording in It's Learning it would save me a lot of time
