See when someone is typing in chat

Collaborate November Release | Release to Production 31 Oct - 1 Nov, 2018

Most students are extremely comfortable with some form of text-based communication. You may see students participate in chat who might be hesitant to speak up in audio/video settings.

Now you can see when someone is typing in chat. Monitor chat to see if someone is about to ask a question or make a comment.

Support for SRT caption files for recording post-captioning

Collaborate November Release | Release to Production 31 Oct - 1 Nov, 2018

We recently added the ability for moderators to upload a caption file to their recordings in the Collaborate Scheduler user interface (UI). These captions are then displayed in the playback of the recording. When we released this capability, we only supported the WebVTT (Web Video Text Tracks) caption file format. We have now also added support for SRT (SubRip Subtitle) caption file.

Upload a SRT caption file to add or replace captions in recordings. From Recordings, find the recording you want, open the Recording options menu, and select Add caption source.
