MediaCore and Instructure Partner to Expand Video Sharing Capabilities

Schools and universities can now add, manage and share educational videos in the Canvas LMS with MediaCore

SALT LAKE CITY, December 19, 2013 – MediaCore, the cloud-based media library used by K-12 schools, higher education institutions and enterprise companies, has developed an integration with the Canvas by Instructure learning management system (LMS), making it easier to add files from MediaCore libraries to Canvas courses.

“Canvas users can now upload and access high-definition content quickly and easily on any device, from anywhere,” said Stuart Bowness, MediaCore CEO and co-founder.

The MediaCore integration allows Canvas users to export video, audio and documents from MediaCore libraries directly from the Canvas interface. With a few clicks, users can securely embed files of any type up to 20 GB into Canvas pages and courses.

MediaCore automatically optimizes videos and media files for viewing on any browser or mobile device. Additionally, its Collections feature allows users to arrange videos in their library into useful course groups. Users can search, view clips in lessons or ask students to view videos for homework.

“Canvas is built on the principles of ease of use and deeper learning, and that’s exactly what the MediaCore integration accomplishes,” said Brian Whitmer, Instructure’s co-founder and chief learning officer. “Making it easier for educators to integrate rich content into their courses is our primary goal.”
