Live Instructor Meetings with Project Review
Instructors and students can connect for live video “office hours” within the platform. Students present their project media for review and discussion. Both parties can control/navigate video playback and scrolling, facilitating seamless collaboration.
Contextual Feedback on Student Work
Instructors, students, and peers can place multiple time-based comments on video lectures, exercises and projects — and easily navigate and preview comments in a video timeline. Threaded replies enable productive conversations.
A Live Syllabus
The Dashboard features broadcast-quality video lectures, project assignments, and scheduled 1:1 video “office hours” with instructors. Easily track student progress, set due dates, and tailor the syllabus to fit your curriculum.
Original Video Production
Smashcut can develop engaging, high-quality video lectures and supplemental content tailored to your online curriculum. Our creative team collaborates with your faculty to conceive, design, and produce exclusive video content to support a wide range of online media programs.
Notifications for Project Activity & Video Meetings
Students and instructors are notified with in-browser, email, and text notifications for upcoming video meetings and completed project feedback.
Developed by film educators, Smashcut’s extensive library of high-quality, original video lessons and well-designed project assignments can be leveraged to supplement your curriculum, or used as primary course material.
