  • Arc can be used as a standalone product, but its strength lies in its integration power. Arc integrates with Canvas and allows instructors to seamlessly integrate media interaction into the classroom.

    When Arc is integrated with Canvas, all Arc users can use Arc as an external tool through the the Rich Content Editor. The Rich Content Editor is part of multiple features in Canvas including Assignments, Discussions, and Pages. For students, the Rich Content Editor is also available in course groups and in Text Entry assignment submissions.

    By default, embedded media files allow comments to be added, though comments can be removed based on user preference.

    Note: Depending on your user role, not all Arc functionality may be available through the Rich Content Editor. If your Global Navigation Menu includes a link to Arc, you can manage videos at any time directly through an Arc account. Instructors can also access Arc through the Course Navigation Menu.

  • As an instructor, you can view analytics for a video or audio file in your course and see how many users have viewed the video or audio file. Analytics can help you see if a user viewed the entire media file or skipped segments. This feature specifically helps you see if students sufficiently viewed the content in preparation for an assignment or discussion.

    When a student embeds a video or audio file, the video or audio file is created as a new copy owned by you. Students cannot edit any details or view analytics for video or audio files they embedded in a course. Regardless of comments, embedded media views are always included in analytics.

  • After you upload a video or audio file, you can edit the details of the media and add tags.

    Details include the title and description of the media. Descriptions do not appear anywhere in Arc, but the content in the description is used to locate the media files when users search for them.

    Tags help organize the media and also act as search terms to help users find a relevant media.
