Jump to: navigation, search

Effective January 1st, 2019 we will be transitioning from ShareStream to echo360 as our video platform of choice for secured educational video within Isaak-Sakai. We are currently in the process of transitioning existing content within the Pick-N-Play platform into the new Videos tool. Starting January 1st, this tool can be enabled within the Manage Tools areas of Site Info under "External Tools". For more information on enabling the tool see Adding Tools in Sakai


For simplicity, we have labeled the echo360 Isaak-Sakai integration "Videos". Enabling the "Videos" tool in Isaak-Sakai will allow Instructors to upload class video content and will allow students to upload video to be share with members of the class.

[edit] Notes and resources for creating Videos to load into echo360

Converting PowerPoint into video is a way to retain any audio or transitions. You must "record" your slide show in PowerPoint before any conversion can happen: Recording Videos Information

Once your recording is done, you can convert the .pptx file to video (.mp4 or .mov): Saving Powerpoint as Videos

If you are using a Mac: You will need PowerPoint 16.21 or newer to have the audio record and work. All students at Brock have access to PowerPoint 16.21 through their Office365 access: Installing Office365
