Canvas Studio

Canvas Studio is a more video-centric, interactive way to approach e-learning. Where video-as-a-learning-tool has typically been one-way and passive, Canvas makes video learning an active, collaborative, eff¬ective experience. Canvas Studio engages learners by turning content into conversation. It’s video as discussion, not statement. It’s 21st-century learning for 21st-century learners.

Also, students can initiate synchronous meetings from remote locations with Appear.in, a video chat tool that allows anyone to share his/her screen and requires no account.
