Instructor visibility

When an admin selects an organizational privacy setting, that setting is the default privacy setting for any instructor account created within that license. Individual instructors can then select any privacy setting available in either the profile or on individual Bulb or Playlist privacy settings. 

  • Bulbs & Playlists are public - Bulbs and Playlists will be visible in Premade Library and Media Library
  • Bulbs & Playlists are visible to members of your district/institution - Bulbs and Playlists will be visible to members of just the institution
  • Bulbs & Playlists are visible to members of your school/site - Bulbs and Playlists will be visible to only members of the specific school you belong to within the institution 
  • Bulbs & Playlists are private - Bulbs and Playlists will not be visible in Premade Library or Media Library but can be shared via a direct link to instructors only

Bulb defaults

Determine playback settings for Bulbs. Note: Bulb defaults will only impact new Bulbs. For more information on Bulb settings, click here

  • Allow learners to rewind during questions - learners will be able to replay sections of the video prior to each question.
  • Allow learners to skip questions - learners can choose not to answer certain questions and continue playing the video.
  • Allow learners to fast forward - learners can skip ahead when viewing the video.
  • Allow learners to retake once completed - learners can choose to re-answer some, or all, questions in the Bulb.
  • Enable captions on all videos - learners who view the Bulb will have the option to view captions.
  • Hide final score from learners - Instructors have the option to hide the learner score when the bulb is completed. This will prevent learners from seeing a specific percentage score when they complete a Bulb.
  • Allow learners to increase playback speed - This option will automatically be enabled for all bulbs. Instructors can now have the option of disabling playback speed so their learners are unable to speed up videos.

Hide final score from learners - Instructors have the option to hide the learner score when the bulb is completed. This will prevent learners from seeing a specific percentage score when they complete a Bulb.
