We're excited to announce enhancements to video delivery in activities!
We have introduced a new setting in the Resource component of activities to allow platform managers to restrict or enable fast forwarding during playback of added videos.
The restriction of fast forwarding could be troublesome to first responders who are called out midway through watching a video. To accommodate that need, we have also implemented video bookmarking when this restriction is enabled. Once a user clicks Save Changes on their activity completion, our system will bookmark their place in the video, allowing them to begin right where they left off when they return!
In addition, when multiple videos are added to an activity and fast forwarding has been restricted, users will also be restricted from playing more than one video at a time. When the system recognizes that another video has begun, it will automatically pause the one currently playing, ensuring that your users give their full attention to each video added.
In the next few months, stay tuned for more exciting enhancement releases including the ability to control the number of times courses and activities can count for credit in credentials!
