3. Workshop Overview

This course is an introduction to the use of Video Assignments in your Learn.UQ course. It is designed to step you through the process of setting up a Video Assignment, marking a video assignment as well as providing you with recommendations for video assignments and support for students.

Benefits of Video Assignments

  • Can be used as a substitute for face-to-face presentations.
  • Provides Identity Verified Assessment if students are instructed to appear in the video.
  • Develops communication skills.
  • Develops visual literacies and promotes creativity.
  • Increases competency and efficiency using technology.
  • Allows for efficient assessing of large student cohorts.

Submission Options

There are two (2) video or audio assignment submission options (excluding ePortfolio):

  1. Set up a Blackboard assignment and have students use the Kaltura Media mashup in the text editor to upload and embed the file.

a. For individual video assignments, students simply submit their assignment which then can be marked through Grade Centre.

b. For group video assignments, the Blackboard groups and Blackboard assignment tool can be used in combination so one student, on behalf of the group, submits the assignment which then can be marked through Grade Centre. See the Group assignments section.

Note: Video assignments can also be submitted to a course gallery by students so that the rest of your cohort can view the video's as well. For further information refer to the Course Gallery guide.
