Integration with SAFARI Montage into HallConnect is not yet complete. Until that integration is complete your students will need to open another tab and sign into SAFARI Montage (the same way they log onto a HallCo computer) to view the desired content within HallConnect. Notice that if you want students to open another tab it is a good idea to insert an Instructor Note to Student with this item, but you may also want to already have practiced this procedure or noted the directions in an item viewed prior to this document or somehow how make it part of their logging in procedures. An optional item enhancement is under the Visibility and Completion tab to the right. You already know the length of the video, chapter, or playlist from SAFARI Montage. If you desire you can set the required amount of time to be spent on this item. This item will be marked as completed when that amount of time is spent on that item. Additionally you can mark that the student has to complete this item before moving on to the next item. If you set a time in minutes that means the video will need to play for a certain duration before the student can go to the next item. You may want to use this only with required viewing and sparingly to keep the novelty alive. Atomic Learning is less content and more short, how-to videos on software students might use to create projects. These videos would be ideal for giving students options when asking them to demonstrate their new knowledge after some intensive study. There is no integration between Atomic Learning and HallConnect. Luckily, the same procedure of opening a second tab and logging in (UN/PW same – see your Media Specialist) will allow your students to view the content within HallConnect.
The same procedure works to bring in Atomic Learning videos as Safari Montage videos. Once you have drilled down to a video that introduces the tool you think might spark a project idea copy the Share link and paste it under the Choose Web Site … button. As soon as you insert the link, preview it to be sure it is as expected, then select OK. Notice that if you want students to open another tab it is a good idea to insert an Instructor Note to Student with this item, but you may also want to already have practiced this procedure or noted the directions in an item viewed prior to this document or somehow how make it part of their logging in procedures. The optional item enhancement under the Visibility and Completion tab to the right is likely not appropriate for these videos. Often these videos are used as suggestions, supplemental to what the student already knows, or just to expand on an interest a student may have. When HallConnect opens this video inside HallConnect your students still have the option to browse the Tutorial Playlist that surrounds that one video clip that you choose to represent what this software can do. What else are you interested in bringing into HallConnect?
