The use of video and audio streaming for education has skyrocketed, driven largely by the emergence of flipped classrooms and MOOCs as well as the growth of blended and fully online programs for remote learners.
The ShareStream Video Platform extends Brightspace with a turnkey media-management system for uploading, transcoding, storing, managing and streaming media, complete with digital rights management.
It includes Pick-n-Play, an easy-to-use video streaming application for instructional and student-generated content available seamlessly within Brightspace, as well as media-publishing features integrated with Brightspace through D2L’s Valence API.
Extending Brightspace with the ShareStream Platform
ShareStream’s integration with the Insert Stuff feature in Brightspace enables instructors and administrative users to add media assets stored in the ShareStream Platform to various locations in Brightspace, including Discussions, Quizzes, Surveys and News.
Utilizing ShareStream Pick-n-Play as a Learning Tool within Brightspace, instructors and students (if granted the required privileges) can upload, tag, play and collaborate on course media, all in one environment.
Utilizing ShareStream’s MediaManager application—a full-featured media management solution that integrates seamlessly with Brightspace— instructional technology leads can manage collections of video, audio and image assets campus-wide.
