Dashboard Integration


Annoto’s dashboard provides comprehensive analytics and insights about the learners and their interactions, giving a view on how and when learners interact with the video content and with each other, allowing you to curate and monitor learners activities and gain insights on the video content.
Same as Annoto's in-video collaboration widget solution, the dashboard can be integrated as part of any environment, allowing the customer to manage and get insights on all the video content from different sources and environments (without costly migrations).
