Infobase is pleased to announce that Films On Demand, Classroom Video On Demand, Access Video On Demand, and Learn360 have received several new enhancements of note.
New “Continuous Play” Option for Playlists
This useful new feature offers the option of continuous playback, in which each segment in a playlist automatically plays one after the other, without the user needing to do anything. After they create a playlist, users can simply select their preferred setting (to “enable continuous play” or not) from just above the new Intro Video upload area.
New! My Custom Segments
Now On Demand and Learn360 users have another way to customize their experience! The new My Custom Segments section allows users to select the portions of any title that best meet their needs and create their own custom segments. The custom segments can then be viewed on that title’s View Video page, added to a playlist, or embedded into a third-party website.
New! Share to Google Classroom
Google Classroom users can now incorporate On Demand and Learn360 content into Classroom courses with the click of a button! Simply use the Share link on the search results page or on the Video Player page.
New Citation Export Options
Students and researchers have additional options for exporting data into their bibliographies. On Demand and Learn360 citations now feature full integration with not only EasyBib, but NoodleTools, too. Users can create their bibliographies under their EasyBib or NoodleTools accounts and include On Demand and Learn360 videos along with other references being used for their papers.
A new LTI application for the Moodle LMS has been added, joining existing ones for Canvas and D2L, and expanding educators’ options for integrating On Demand and Learn360 content into their courses! Instructors can easily embed content without having to leave the LMS.
ADMIN PORTAL ENHANCEMENTS:
Show Off Your Custom Content
Account Administrators can now include custom content in the Featured Titles slider on the home page—a great way to show off content that is important to your particular institution!
Usage Stats Enhancements
- The new Custom Report Tool allows Account Administrators to fully customize their reports with desired dates, specific data points, and optional filters to create various title usage reports that fit their needs.
- For Films On Demand and Access Video On Demand users, Counter 4.0 is now available along with Counter 2.0 as an option for reports.
- Save and Export Reports! Account Admins can now save any reports they create and access them from the “My Saved Reports” tab in the Admin Portal to rerun at any time. Reports are also available to be exported in CSV format as well as Excel (XLSX) format. Admins can easily choose their preferred format.
