Exciting news…Cobb teachers and students can now use Microsoft Stream! Stream is a secure video service that can be used to upload, view, and share videos from multiple platforms. Whether teachers are creating videos using screencasting tools, with PowerPoint Recorder, or other video tools, they can securely upload and share these videos with students. Stream also allows teachers to add interactive elements like Forms to a video, and that provides an opportunity to collect formative data from students while they watch and participate. An additional benefit is that users can save directly to Stream from many Microsoft products making the video uploading and sharing process less time consuming.
