Student Usage Metrics - allow you to view and download analytics of student viewing, including how many videos they watched, how much of the video they watched, and how often they watched it.
Content Bookmarking – allows your students to place bookmarks throughout presentations, allowing them to pick up where they stopped in a lecture or to return to interesting or difficult sections.
Collaborative discussions – you and your students can start a collaborative discussion at any point in the lecture by making comments that are embedded within the captured lecture, allowing them to interact with one another.
Full streaming + downloads – your students can stream the lecture capture videos in their browser, as well as download the videos for later viewing without Internet access.
Personal Capture – allows you to record audio, webcam video, and computer movements and activities and then upload your recordings from your personal computer to your course collection.
