Annoto Video Collaboration Tool Overview

Annoto is an external tool that integrates seamlessly with Kaltura and other video platforms to allow for a robust and engaging viewing experience for students. Annoto enables your course participants to add time-based annotations as an overlay to any video content, turning passive video watching into an active and collaborative learning experience while providing instructors actionable insights on the students and the video content delivered. 

Getting Started With Annoto

Annoto is not automatically enabled in courses, so you will need to manually enable it within your course. Once Annoto is enabled, all embedded videos that are added to the course will now be ready for whatever Annoto features you select within the Annoto Dashboard. Features include:

  • Comments
  • Student Personal Notes
  • Video Comments
  • Chat
  • Analytics (already enabled for all users)

You can learn more about all available features with Annoto's User Guides
