Since most faculty will be integrating Top Hat with Canvas, it is essential that students use their ONID email to create their Top Hat account. The easiest way to create a Top Hat student account with your ONID email is to either click on a Top Hat link in an OSU Canvas course menu or to click on the registration link from a Top Hat course invitation sent by an OSU faculty member using Top Hat.
Accessibility Check (also called UDOIT) is a tool for faculty to quickly identify and fix common accessibility issues in their Canvas course content. This tool is not visible to students in Canvas. A few of the accessibility issues that the tool will detect include missing alternative text for images, poor color contrast, and missing descriptive link text.
From 2012-2014 OSU investigated our options and needs for instructional innovation and technology. Over the course of our campus-wide inquiry, Canvas was preferred by students and instructors alike as the system and technology partner that is in the best position to help us meet our goals.

Playlists allow a content owner to group content together for embedding on an external web page. Every time you add a new or remove an item to a Playlist, your embedded player automatically updates to reflect this change.
Channels allow a content owner to group media together in MediaSpace. Additionally, the content owner can restrict access to that channel to a defined list of users (based on ONID usernames).
Categories are created by Kaltura systems administrators, and media added to a category are automatically publicly available. Note: if you publish your media to a category, adding that same media to a Channel will not restrict who has access to it.
