Types of Video Assignments

The video assignment tool allows instructors to create four different types of assessments. Click on each type below to view details.

1. Individual Project

In an individual project, learners record or upload a video of themselves presenting on a topic or demonstrating a specific skill. With the screen-share feature, they can also enhance their project with visual aids. The individual video project can be used for the following evaluation types:

  • Presentations with or without visual aids (e.g. screen sharing)
  • Explanations of theories/concepts/arguments
  • Demonstration of skills
  • Critiques (of an article/movie/book etc.)

2. Group Project

In a group video assignment, students work in groups toward a single presentation/video. Within their group, students can schedule and host their own Online Rooms meetings to collaborate on the assignment. The members’ individual contributions are then combined into a cohesive end product, which is submitted to the instructor in Brightspace. A group video project can be used for the following evaluation types:

  • Group presentations
  • Role plays
  • Conversation scenarios in foreign language courses
  • Capstone projects

3. Question & Answer Assignment

In a question-and-answer video assignment, the student is presented with prompts (up to 20) and given a set amount of time to respond. Recording starts once a prompt is presented, and the student only has one opportunity to answer each prompt, replicating the high-stakes environment of being asked questions in a face-to-face setting. A question & answer video project can be used for the following evaluation types:

  • Oral quizzes
  • Checking for understanding
  • Skill demonstrations
  • Mock interviews
  • Oral assessments in foreign language courses
  • Skills assessment for vocational training
  • Interview preparation

4. Interactive Video

In an interactive video assignment, learners watch a video recorded or uploaded by the instructor, and they respond to prompts at specific times in the video.

The prompts (maximum of 20) appear at various points in the recording, as determined by the instructor. These prompts ask students to either answer multiple choice questions or to give video responses. When prompted for a video response, the student records a video within the platform. They continue until they have both completed the prompts and watched the whole video. Progress is saved, so learners can complete the assignment in multiple sittings. When finished, the assignment is submitted automatically. An interactive video project can be used for the following evaluation types:

  • Safety/compliance training
  • Checking for understanding
  • Video quizzes
  • Soft skills training
