How to use Screencast-O-Matic with Canvas LMS

Are you using the Instructure Canvas Learning Management System (LMS)?  With the release of our LTI App, you can now enjoy working with Screencast-O-Matic directly in the Canvas LMS.   Following are the key things you can accomplish while working in Canvas:
Canvas Integration Features 
  • Single Sign On (SSO): signing in to Canvas will automatically sign you in to Screencast-O-Matic.  You don’t need to re-enter your login details.
  • Launch the Recorder: click the Screencast-O-Matic button from the Canvas Rich Content Editor and then launch the recorder to create your video.
  • Embed a video: clicking the Screencast-O-Matic button in the editor also displays your Canvas videos.  You can select a video to embed directly in a course, assignment, announcement, etc.
  • Students as Viewers and Creators (Team Pro Hosting):  once you have embedded a video in Canvas, students can watch the video including captions from virtually any device.  You can also add the Channel Recorder to any assignment, announcement, assessment, etc and have your students create their own videos.   Student created videos will be uploaded only to your Canvas channel on Screencast-O-Matic.  These videos will surface in the Screencast-O-Matic video library you manage in Canvas.
The seamless integration with Canvas is included with both the Free and Team Premier Plans.   You can get it today and start enjoying Screencast-O-Matic in your Canvas experience.
