allow fast forwarding at any point. And if not, allow increasing the video speed.
As a student, I understand why a professor wouldn't want a student to skip parts. But it's a hassle to sit through a video if I wanted to watch through it again. For example, if I wanted to review a specific concept in a pre-recorded lecture, I have to wait until the video reaches that point. And honestly, it's annoying. I, along with my professor and classmates, would really appreciate this greatly.

There is an option to allow students to fastfoward. It's just in the (teacher) bulb settings. You can access it from the little side button on the video. Hope this was helpful :)

Yes. it would be beneficial for students that are reviewing a lesson or watching for additional resources to be able to watch the video in a faster playback mode similar to YouTube https://youtu.be/0xe4D_T_WN0
