In 2014, Yale commissioned a report to analyze the landscape of video-related services at the University. This report ultimately resulted in the pilot of Panopto. Several faculty members participated in the pilot to evaluate Panopto as it relates to: ease of use, video creation and curation, and accessibility.
In Fall 2018, the Mid-Semester Feedback Tool pilot was released to participating schools. This Mid-Semester Feedback tool provides another mechanism for instructors to collect feedback from students. The tool is completely optional so instructors can choose whether or not to use the tool in their Canvas course sites.
We are happy to announce the Beta Release** of our newly developed Sign-Up tool in Canvas, based on the functionality provided by the Sign-Up tool in Classes*v2. We are releasing this tool as a Beta so that we can allow users like yourself to test out the tool and provide us with your input to ensure that the final version of the Sign-Up tool is built to meet the needs of our community.
** A beta release is a preliminary release of a product to the community to get feedback and input from users to be used to enhance the tool for a final release.
