You may have noticed that the videos page on Torsh TALENT got a revamp! We are especially excited about these changes as they were all specific requests from our clients. Here are some additions to our teacher professional development platform that we hope will make your TALENT experience even better.
1. Upload Videos, Audio Files, PDFs, Word Documents and Images
Ever wanted to upload a document and share it with colleagues without tying it to a specific video? Now you can! You can upload a variety of files to TALENT including word documents, PDFs, audio files, and images. After all, a picture says a thousand words, and an audio track says 110–150 wpm.
2. Find Files Easily With Improved Search
Searching for your uploads and your colleagues’ uploads should be easy. The new Videos & Files page increases the speed and precision of your searches. You can still do a simple search of all files or by matching tags. Now, you can also narrow down your results by searching within a collection or by file type and then, filtering the list by username or title. For example, if I want to find a video I know Krystal shared with me, I can search all of the files shared with me, or I can search just the videos shared with me and then filter by “Krystal.”
3. Change The Layout To Suit Your Needs
There are now three views on your Videos & Files page. The default view looks most like what you have seen before. However, you also have the option to select a tile view without the video stats to view more files at once. You can also select a compact table view. This can be really helpful for doing bulk actions. This allows you to view up to 100 records per page. You can easily select the videos you need and add them or remove them from a collection.
4. Drag and Drop To Upload
As the old saying goes, “Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.” Now, instead of selecting the upload button at the top of TALENT and selecting the folder to find the file you need, you can simply drag and drop it from your computer. You can even upload and organize in one fell swoop: if you are currently viewing a collection, drag and drop your files to instantly upload them to that collection.
5. Nest Collections Within Collections
Ever wanted to create a sub-collection? Now you can! For example, you can create a collection called “2016-2017 School Year” and then add three additional collections within the school year for math, language arts and science. Simply click “Manage Collections” from the gear icon drop-down menu and then click on “New Subcollection”.
