The video assignment tool allows students to submit video files/media for assessment. Staff can also grade and provide feedback on submitted work via the Moodle assignment grading tools. 

This assignment workflow utilises Lecturecast to enable students to upload and submit videos through the Moodle assignment. Using Lecturecast to store and access videos is advantageous to having students directly submit to Moodle. Lecturecast allows for larger file uploads and the quality and playback speed of its videos are typically greater.

How to create a video assignment

If you do not require students to submit any supporting files such as word files, untick the 'File submissions' option.

If you do require students to submit any supporting files, such as Word or Excel documents, tick the 'File submissions' option. Supporting files must be no more than 160MB. Please note the file limit of 160MB only relates to supporting file in this case, as the video the student uploads will be uploaded using Lecturecast.

NOTE: Once a student submits a Lecturecast video as a response to a Moodle Assignment, that video is locked down on the Echo360 side. The student cannot edit or delete the video once it is locked (a Lecturecast administrator can delete the video if necessary).
