• You would like to give learners the possibility to record a video and hand it in to you, the instructor.
  • You would like to have learners record a video that other learners can give feedback to.
The recording feature only works in Chrome and Firefox.

Template type

You will need 1 of the following template type:

  • Blended learning
    With this template type, learners will not be able to give feedback to each other
  • Social learning
  • Game-based learning

Click the Templates tab and click Edit. Under the Template tab you can create a new activity with +Activity. Then choose Video hand-in assignment

1) Fill in the assignment description

If you want to use a content part you could select or create it.
Otherwise choose Text editor

2) Add information that the learner consult during recording

For example a checklist with tips for the learner to pay attention to while recording, or the objectives needed to complete the assignment.

Here you can also choose to use a content part, or you can add text directly in the text editor.

3) Set the default settings

After publishing, not everything is adjustable any more. Those settings have been marked with a *below.

Participants can see each others files*
Learners can see each others assignments, when handed in.

Discussions are allowed in the hand-in assignment*
Learners can discuss with each other about their hand-in assignments (only available for social learning and game-based learning)

Assessment possible*
You as instructor can mark the assignment as Passed or Failed (close activity). If you, the Instructor selects Failed, the learner will have a retry possibility.

Activity can be reassessed
This option is turned on by default and gives you, the instructor the option to modify the score that was given by the assessor. If the activity has been reassessed, the original date of the first time will continue to be shown to the learners.

External assessor allowed*
The learner has the option to invite someone external to assess his hand-in assignment.

Add numeric score to assessment*
Check this option if the assessor should grade the assessment. You can use multiple criteria to calculate the final score, or you can have the assessor fill in the final score. If you, the instructor enters a score lower than the threshold, the learner will have the option to hand in a new assignment, unless you, the instructor closes the assignment.

After checking the option, extra options will appear to set up the rest of the score. The easiest way to set up a threshold is by choosing Percentage. Would you prefer to round to decimals, whole of half numbers? First read the article How do I set the threshold of an assessment relative to the score?

Allow learner to complete assignment after upload*
If you don't want to get involved with assessing the assignment, you can check this option. Once a learner finishes an assignment, the 'Continue button' in the learning journey will change to a 'View details button'.

No hand-in button while testing

You will not see the hand-in button while testing the video hand-in assignment. This button is only visible to subscribed learners. You can see an example of the screen of a learner in the example below.

After clicking Create video response, the learner will see a popup in which the recording can be started, if the device they're using has a recording feature.

Once a video has been recorded, it can still be deleted. Once the learner clicks Hand in, it is definite and other learners can give feedback and/or the instructor can assess the video, depending on the settings.
