A Few Collection and Feed Use Cases

Use Case 1: An instructor wants to share several videos about an upcoming project with students using a single link. Create a Collection in Knowmia and call it, Video Project Assignment. Add multiple videos to the Collection and then share the link to the Collection with your students. When the students click the link, they can join the Collection to view all of the shared videos within their Feed. All members will receive an email notification if new media is added to this Collection.

Use Case 2: At the beginning of a semester, you’d like all students to create a video to introduce themselves to each other. Create a new Collection called Student Introductions and set the default collection permissions to Contributor. Share the link with your students for them to join the Collection. Students can now share their introduction video to this Collection, and all members can view the videos in their Feed.

Use Case 3: Create a new Collection called FAQs and share the link with your students to join. Answer common questions with a video response and share them in this Collection. Whenever new questions are asked throughout the semester, share your video responses to this Collection so all members are notified in their Feed and get the same answer. This can help reduce the same questions being asked by multiple students.
