In this activity, you will respond to videos recorded by the other student(s) in your group. The first student provides an opening video. The next student will then review this opening video and record a timed video response using their webcam and microphone. This video will become the starting video for the first (or next) student. Check back regularly so you can respond when it is your turn. If there are more than two students in your group, you can choose which student responds to your video. After your conversation is complete, one student will click the finalize button which will combine all of the videos in order and submit for the assignment. Follow the instructions provided by your instructor.
To begin the activity, open the activity link in your Table of Contents.
The first student (designated by the instructor) will provide the opening statement by either recording directly onto the YouSeeU platform or uploading a previously recorded video. Click on the Provide video button.
*The remaining video recordings will be timed responses with YouSeeU activating your webcam and microphone and recording directly onto the YouSeeU platform.
If you and another student are participating in the activity, then the conversation will go back and forth between the the two of you until the activity objective is complete. If there are more than 2 students participating, then the first student will assign you or another teammate as the responder.
When the activity is available, you will review the opening video and any other previously recorded videos listed in the Conversation Videos column (you might need to scroll down the page). You may notice you are unable to view the most current video-there’s a red triangle with an exclamation point instead of a play button. When you click the SHOW QUESTION button, the most current video will play.
When it is your turn to respond to the conversation, you will respond using the Q&A recorder. The Q&A recorder requires immediate, timed responses to mimic a spontaneous conversation. You can learn more about the Q&A recorder by cicking here.
Your partner will have the opportunity to respond or you will need to assign a responder. If you forget to assign a responder then the system will assign one for you. To assign a responder simply choose a name from the drop down box. You can also add text to your response by clicking the text box.
Once the activity objective has been met, click Finalize to allow the videos to be combined into one and submitted to your instructor.
DO NOT CLICK FINALIZE UNTIL EVERYONE HAS RESPONDED OR THE OBJECTIVE HAS BEEN MET. CLICKING FINALIZE WILL SUBMIT YOUR VIDEO AS IS AND WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BE ALTERED.
