Hapara Focused Browsing is a great feature to guide and focus students to the correct website, quiz sites, and more.
Open Tabs is a fantastic feature for sharing URLs to learners within your class. You can also choose to focus your students to the newly opened browser tabs for a set period of time using the Focused Browsing feature.
When a Focused Browsing session is active, learners can’t open new tabs, swap to other tabs or browse to new sites or URLs.
Important NOTES from our testing:
Open Hapara from the icon in your ClassLink. Open the class you plan to focus browsing.
If students are using school Chromebooks - they should show up in your Hapara automatically.
If they are using personal devices, which we do not recommend, have them access Google.com and login with their school email. Then you should see them in Hapara.
We do not recommend using the preset timing tool because servers are not always in sync. Only launch Focus Browsing after students are in class.
Student will receive a message that a focused browing session is about to begin.
Teacher may setup the session so any tabs students had open previoys to session re-open - or they do not re-open.

It is extremely easy to put these video links into your Canvas pages and there is no worry about copyright violations. All these videos are legally acquired and meant for use in the educational setting.
All videos are segmented, so you can easily use smaller portions of the video instead of fast-forwarding or showing the whole thing.
These videos are from producers like A&E, TED, National Geographic and other quality programmers whose content is not legally available for free use on the web. See the fact sheet for a more comprehensive list of producers.

Narrations and timings can enhance a web-based or self-running slide show. If you have a sound card, microphone, and speakers, and (optionally) a webcam, you can record your PowerPoint presentation and capture narrations, slide timings, and ink gestures.
After you have made the recording, it's like any other presentation that can be played for you or your audience in Slide Show—or you can save the presentation as a video file. Learn more...
