What is Remark?

Remark is a video annotation tool that enables both individual annotations and group discussion. Annotations can be text, drawing, or voice notes which are tied to a particular time in the video. Participants in a viewing room are able to reply to and discuss comments.

What can I do with Remark?

Remark is a versatile tool. Here are a few ways it could be incorporated into a course:

  • Remark can be used for asynchronous discussion with video much like a discussion board. The advantage to Remark is that the initial comments and replies are time-stamped and noted at the point in the video that sparked the discussion.
  • Remark can be used for self, peer and/or expert reviews of video-based content. For example, for a strategic persuasion class, Remark could be used to share student video presentations with guest reviewers for feedback.
  • Remark can be used to annotate lecture-based videos. Students are able to export their notes in a PDF for further review and/or return to the video viewing room to see their original notes.
