A simple video editor that can be used to ensure customized E-Learning lessons
In response to the Covid-19 emergency, in almost all European countries the suspension of learning activities and closure of schools and training agencies has been decided as well as the simultaneous activation of e-learning. The CAnVASS+ (Content Audio Video mAnagement SyStem Plus) project, a strategic partnership Erasmus+ in the field of School Education; approved by the Italian National Agency Indire, has developed a video editor for teachers that can contribute to the continuity and customization of students; learning, especially for the most vulnerable groups.Through the CANVASS + video editor, every teacher and / or trainer, even those with low digital skills, can create multimedia training packages for their students.CANVASS + is a project that has created not only a software to edit e-learning lessons (free of charge) but also a toolkit of good practices, aiming at increasing the availability of training materials accessible remotely by teachers and students (www.canvass.eu).CANVASS + is also a project that offers tools to limit early school leaving by keeping participation active, also from those students for whom participation in learning processes needs to be strengthened.
The platform developed within the framework of the CAnVASS+ Content Audio Video mAnagement SyStem; http://canvass.media/ project, already available free of charge, allows the teacher to customize lessons, according to the needs of both the class group and individual students. It is a tool designed to allow the creation of lessons in five simple steps, using an intuitive and easy-to-use interface.The software features avatars and interactive scenarios, in which audio files, text files, images, in- depth focus boxes, etc. can be inserted. Through the CAnVASS+ platform, the learning content will be transformed into a video file that can be shared through Youtube, Facebook, Twitter.
