Instructors may ask students to submit videos for assignments or forums. While it may be possible to submit those videos as an attachment, it is also possible to create video submissions that are under 2 minutes through the GauchoSpace text editor. This article will discuss the steps to enable this type of submission and the steps for submitting the videos in assignments and forums.
Note: this function is not available on the Safari browser
In order to record videos you will need to have the Atto HTML Editor activated in your profile. This is the default setting for GauchoSpace, but if you do not see the record button please see the section below "Don't see the button to record?"
For the forum, when students navigate to post a message in the forum, click the camera icon in the menu to open the recording pop-up window (see screenshot).
To begin, students will need to have the Atto HTML editor (default setting) selected in their profile preferences. To check or change this setting, navigate to the home page and click ‘edit my profile’ in the ‘User Overview’ section (see screenshot).
