This tutorial will focus specifically on the options provided when added a video to pathway. For a detailed look at creating a pathway and adding content to it, please refer to Tutorial 2: Creating a Pathway.
When videos are added to pathways they provide additional options allowing you to set their start and stop time, effectively creating shorter video clips. This can be helpful in breaking up a longer video, or focusing on the section which is helpful for your lesson or curriculum.
As with previous tutorials, you will first need to log into LabXchange and go to you dashboard via the link in the top right corner. You can then select an existing pathway from the My Content section, or create a new one using the + Add new content option.
With the pathway editor open, choose the video you want to edit or add a new one by clicking the + Add content option. When adding a video, you will have options to search the Library, select from videos saved to your dashboard (Your Content), select a video you have listed as one of your Favorites, or import a new video via +Add new content.
Once you have added a video to your pathway select the cogwheel symbol on the right to set the start and stop time of the clip, as well as adding learning objects and notes if applicable. Note that you will need to start playing the video before the clipping options are displayed.
The start and stop times for the video can be adjusted using the markers on the progress bar, or they can be set to specific times using the Start position and Stop position options on the right. Clicking on the plus or minus buttons will add or remove 10 seconds from the stated time, or you can type in a time manually.
If the video has a transcript included (this requires uploading an SRT file when saving a video), bear in mind that you can click on any of the timestamped phrases to skip to that portion of the video. This can be helpful in finding the section you need without having to skip around or re-watch the entire video.
Once you have set your Start and Stop times, you can scroll down to add optional Learning objectives or Notes for the video clip. Then, click the orange Update item button to save your clip.
