1. Introduction

This self-paced, online workshop has been designed to provide you with a structured programme to develop your knowledge, skills, and confidence in using Video Assignments in your course.

UQ's video server, Kaltura, can be used by students to submit video or audio assignments. You can also set up submission links using the Blackboard assignment tool, which allows you to use the online marking function to provide comments and feedback using a rubric. 

Examples of student videos are available on the Video Assessment Showcase webpage (UQ login required). This webpage shows a range of student video assessment examples from around the University.

As a course coordinator if you feel you have outstanding examples of student work that you think would be a useful addition to the video assessment showcase please feel free to email details to elearningadvisors@uq.edu.au. Students will need to complete and sign a photography and video consent form in order for their video to be posted on the showcase webpage.

The following topics should be completed in sequence, as this course has been designed to build on knowledge and skills gained in previous topics. 

The process

  1. Before starting the course, submit the Request Form to order a Learn.UQ (Blackboard) Staging course.
  2. Watch the videos and complete the tasks in your Staging course.
  3. Upon completion, send an email to elearningadvisers@uq.edu.au. We will assess your work, provide you with additional assistance if required and record course completion through Staff Development.
