Students have access to a student library where they can upload videos, combine videos, or download videos from previous activities.
******PLEASE NOTE THAT VIDEOS THAT HAVE BEEN UPLOADED TO THE LIBRARY HAVE NOT BEEN SUBMITTED TO YOUR EDUCATOR. TO SUBMIT VIDEOS TO YOUR EDUCATOR, YOU MUST ACCESS THE ASSIGNMENT VIA THE CONTENT LINK TO DO SO.******
Start by clicking opening the Virtual Classroom for the course.
Select the Library tab on the top of the screen.
You have now entered your student library. All videos previously submitted for any YouSeeU activity can be found here. You are also able to upload new videos, record a video directly into the library, transfer videos from online cloud services, combine videos within the library, and copy videos.
To select a video saved to your computer or device, click the Upload button at the bottom of your video library.
You are able to upload multiple videos to your library at once, up to 20 GB. Once you have selected your files you will click begin upload.
If your computer disconnects from the internet the system will automatically pause the uploading process. You are then able to resume the uploading after you have connected to the internet again. You can also pause the upload and resume later.
Underneath the video list, you will see the status of your uploads including upload speed and an estimated time remaining.
The last step is letting the videos process. Processing videos typically takes from 5 to 10 minutes. This can be longer if you have a larger file that is being uploaded.
To transfer videos you have saved in cloud storage like Google Drive, OneDrive or Dropbox, click on the Transfer video button beneath the library list.
Select the appropriate cloud storage icon. You will be asked to sign into your account, then you will select the video file you want to transfer. For more detailed instructions on how to transfer video files from specific cloud storage sites, click here.
