How do I submit audio/video feedback to a student?

You can leave feedback to students as part of the grading process for assignments. In addition to written comments, you can also provide both audio and video feedback. To submit audio feedback, you will need to have a microphone, and to submit video feedback, you will need both a microphone and a webcam.

Submit a Recording

1. Navigate to the SpeedGrader for the assignment you want to leave audio/video feedback on.

2. Under the "Assignment Comments" text box on the right menu, click the "Media Comment" icon. A pop-up window will appear.

Click the "Media Comment" icon.

3. In the pop-up window, make sure the "Record Media" tab is selected. See below on how to upload an existing media file.

4. Click the "Mic" button to select which microphone you wish to use.

5. Click the "Webcam" button to select which webcam you wish to use. For audio only, you can select the "No Video" option for "Webcam".

Note: Adobe Flash Player Settings may appear to allow access to the microphone or webcam devices.

6. Click "Start Recording" when you are ready to begin. This will start a countdown to begin recording. Click "Finish" when you are done.
