  • Can I organize my videos into folders or playlists?

    It is possible to organize videos into Playlists, but the Playlists will not change the appearance of your library or improve your ability to locate videos within your Library.

  • Can I use the Ensemble Quizzing feature?

    If you plan to use Ensemble's Quizzing feature, please be aware that students with visual and/or mobility impairments may struggle to use it efficiently and may require an alternate means of completing these quizzes (such as a Canvas quiz with the Ensemble video or clips embedded). You may also want to prepare a practice quiz so that students can familiarize themselves with the interface and troubleshoot as needed prior to having to use it to earn a grade.
