VidGrid allows D2L users to capture videos directly from the LMS. With the integration, users are automatically created and logged in based on their D2L credentials. Creators can record, upload, and search their library for content. Videos can be inserted anywhere "Insert Stuff" resides in D2L. 

Additionally, auto-graded video quizzes, student recording assignments, and a full-app portal view can be configured.
