What is ShareStream? An Introduction

ShareStream is a secure video streaming service connected to your course in Canvas.

What can I do with a video in ShareStream?

You can upload Zoom recordings (and other self-made videos). You can maintain a repository of videos from DVDs that you use in your teaching. For DVD conversion requests, visit this Pollak Library website.

Videos in ShareStream are only viewable to students who are enrolled in your course and are only available for the open dates of your course.

How do I use ShareStream?

Here are some ideas for using video in your teaching:

  • Record a short video lecture in Zoom, Canvas Studio or Camtasia to share with students. You can share in a Page, a Quiz, an Assignment or a Discussion, depending upon the type of interaction/response you want from your students.
  • Record a Q&A or Review session in Zoom to share with your students who need to review.
  • Share a video clip from a movie, documentary or other source for student discussion.
