If you are interested in having students submit a short video (less than 2 minutes) for an assignment or forum, you can have students create and submit them through the GauchoSpace text editor . Also, students will need to have the Atto HTML Editor activated in their profiles and will likely need instructions. There are brief instructions here for submitting but you can direct them to Students: Record Video for Assignment or Forum.
Note: this function is not available on the Safari browser
For assignments, the 'Online text' option will need to be activated in the ‘Edit settings’ page for the assignment. In the ‘Submission types’ section, check the box for ‘Online text’ (see screenshot). Save changes at the bottom.
When students have submitted video recordings for assignments, you can access them through the grading interface (see first screenshot below) or on the view all submissions page (see second screenshot below).
For forums, this option will automatically be available for students that have the Atto HTML Editor activated in their profile.
When students have submitted video recordings for forums, they will be displayed in the forum posts as a playable video (see screenshot).
If you would like to create a video reply, click the 'Reply' link (#1 in screenshot) then click 'Advanced' (#2 in screenshot).
Select the camera icon in the menu and record your response (see screenshot).
