Pick-n-Play

The Pick-n-Play Course Application is a state-of-the-art video-learning application for instructional and student-generated content that integrates seamlessly with Learning Management Systems (LMSs). It provides instructors and students with an easy-to-use solution for uploading, tagging, playing, and collaborating on course media content.

Easy-to-Use

 

Pick-n-Play includes the ShareStream Next User Experience—ShareStream’s all-new UX and UI—which provides an enhanced look and feel, a simplified layout and intuitive navigation.

Responsive

 

Pick-n-Play’s User Interface (UI) is fully responsive—the application dynamically displays the optimal layout of the Pick-n-Play UI depending on the size of a user’s screen, regardless of whether a user accesses Pick-n-Play from a PC, tablet or smartphone.

Accessible

 

Key accessibility features include keyboard navigation; an accessible media player; closed captioning; and compatibility with assistive technology, such as screen readers.

Collaborative and Interactive

 

Key functionalities include ShareStream’s pioneering features for student-media submissions and ShareStream’s comments feature, which enables users to post comments at specific points in a video or audio asset’s timeline as well as engage in multilevel threaded conversations regarding media content in real time.

Simplify Video Workflows

 

Pick-n-Play makes video for education easy by streamlining the workflow for typical media-related tasks. Users are able to:

Effortlessly upload, transcode and publish media files to the course folders in the ShareStream Platform for which they have privileges

Efficiently find media assets utilizing Pick-n-Play’s features for search, filter and sort

Easily browse content directories for course folders

Extend Learning Management Systems with a Hub for All Course Media Content

The Pick-n-Play Course Application—which serves as a hub for course media content — integrates seamlessly with all of the predominant LMSs. If an academic institution supports more than one LMS across campus, the application is also able to integrate with multiple LMSs from a single ShareStream environment.

In addition to Pick-n-Play’s integrations with LMSs, the ShareStream Video Platform also integrates with LMS content editors, features for assignments and grading, and more.

Foster Active Learning

With Pick-n-Play, students are able to take a more active and participatory role in the learning process. For example, learners are able to create media content from mobile devices using ShareStream Capture and submit video assignments to instructors for assessment. Instructors are able to review, assess and provide feedback to students on media submissions, as well as share student media submissions for collaboration among users enrolled in the course.

Facilitate Vibrant Online Conversations About Media Content

Pick-n-Play enables educators to engage students with interactive video like never before. With ShareStream’s robust feature set for comments, users are able to post questions and comments at specific points in a media asset’s timeline, as well as participate in threaded, instructor-mediated discussions with fellow users enrolled in a course.
