This activity is conducted during a course session that meets in person and is managed by the instructor. All class members in attendance are able to view a presentation or performance in person while providing time-stamped feedback.
Students in the class will open the activity by clicking the assignment link. This allows them to provide time-stamped comments and feedback to their peers as they watch and listen to the presentation or performance. Students will not be able to begin commenting until the instructor begins recording. Once the recording has started, audience members can give feedback by clicking Add Comment and typing their comment in the box. This button will be inactive when the instructor is not recording.
The instructor will start the in-class recording session by clicking the assignment link in the course and then clicking the Start In Class tab in the menu. Next to the name of the student who is presenting, click the set as speaker button.
If the activity is not deep linked then the educator will need to click the camera icon in the activities list.
Prior to recording, test the webcam and microphone to ensure a quality recording. The audio bar beneath the recording window indicates your microphone strength. You might need to use an external microphone if you are in a large room.
When the presenter is ready, click the Record button.
To add time-stamped comments to the recording, click the Add comment button and type your feedback. Instructors can also see the comments being made by all students during the presentation or performance.
At the conclusion of the presentation or performance, click STOP to finish recording. This will also prevent students from commenting further. If you wish to record a student again, you will follow the steps above as if they had not recorded yet.
