More detailed video analytics required before I even think about switching.
My current video hosting software allows me to access how many users are watching my videos, where they are watching from, what device they are using and most importantly, what percentage of the video that they are watching....
It would be great if the ability to set a custom cover for a channel was there. Picking up an image from a video of the channel is not the ideal at all times. The thumbnail of videos can be unique to the video while a channel cover should collectively represent the content of the channel.
"LTI is a primary means by which course content and learning technology functionality is delivered from content providers to students via their institutional LMS interface or portal. It delivers courseware as a service from most large educational content providers, including Pearson and McGraw Hill and is an educational technology distribution and implementation tool in widespread use.Popular LMS software such as ManageBac, D2L, Canvas, Blackboard, and Moodle employ LTI integration to supply student access to third-party software."
I would add Sakai to that list. Adding LTI support opens up huge avenues for Microsoft Stream to be used in an educational context.
I would like to be able to create folders within Channels so that I can organise videos. Our videos can be broken down in to chapters for easy access to specific parts of the video so organising in folders would be great. For example, we are a school and have different subjects. So if we could have channels such as Geography, History, English etc, then create a folder called "Of Mice and Men" and then have videos in there would make it simple to organise for us. At the moment with only a channel, we can't use Stream at all.
