I'd like to assign students to watch Knowmia videos, with automatic grade reporting to Canvas (my LMS). This article explains how to set this up by creating an Assignment in Canvas. However, I would like to embed the videos as iframes in my lesson pages, rather than have students navigate to a standalone Assignment. Is it possible to do this? I'm thinking of a workflow like:
- Create an Assignment in Canvas using the instructions in the article linked above
- Don't send students to the Assignment to watch the video. Rather, embed the video via iframe into a Canvas page along with the rest of the lesson (which includes narrative, slides, etc).
- Students watch the video through the Canvas page
- Grade (viewing percentage) gets passed to the Canvas gradebook as the grade for the Assignment
Is this possible? I am not adding quiz questions to the videos, so I'd simply like to track viewing percentages. If students are authenticated in Knowmia, why should it matter whether they watch the video from inside the Assignment or from inside a Page?
