Easily create clickable transcripts from your Zoom class and meeting recordings.

Tell me more...

This app will help Clark College staff and faculty create clickable transcripts from Zoom class and/or meeting recordings. The transcript, which is HTML can then be embedded within Canvas pages. It can also then be searched within the Canvas course.

The clickable links will take people directly to the spot in the video recording they want. How cool is that?

Fear not 😱, if you need some help, I have detailed instructions and have you covered. I know that this may seem like a lot of work but I know that it will benefit your students and collegues.

See the Teach me How section of this page for step by step instructions.
