How do students submit a video assignment?

Updated on

The Assignments tool allows students to submit brief video assignments, recorded directly in Sakai. Students may record a video of a maximum length of 2:30 (2 minutes and 30 seconds). The video assignment feature does not allow for the use of external cameras or microphones (i.e., students must use the webcams and microphones built into their computers), nor does it have any video editing capabilities. This feature is best used for low-stakes, brief assignments, such as a personal student-to-instructor introduction video or a reading response video. For longer or more substantial video assignments, Panopto is recommended.
