  • Ready-made templates that are fully customizable
  • Intuitive drag-and-drop functionality
  • Access to a full suite of animated characters, music, graphics, and fonts

Collaborate with Annoto

Annoto is a collaboration learning tool, similar to a chat feature, that allows instructors and students to comment and discuss specific moments within a video. Only instructors can add the Annoto feature to videos within their Brightspace course, while students can add the feature to their videos in NYU Stream channels.

Annoto also allows you to add private or public notes and reply to public notes in both NYU Stream-hosted files or a NYU Brightspace course.
