The Poorvu Center created the following video tutorial in response to a recommendation made by the Yale Faculty of Arts and Sciences. The tutorial outlines what a welcome message might include for fall 2020 courses. Faculty can use a number of tools and software programs to record their messages. We have developed instructions for recording a Course Welcome Video using Panopto, Zoom, or a phone. After completing the short form below, the Poorvu Center will help you upload your completed video to your Canvas course site and ensure that all Yale students can view the video, regardless of enrollment status in your course (similar to shopping period).
