Collect Student Video Recordings

The Student Recording Screen allows students to submit a video back to you, their teacher, for grading or storage in a portfolio project.

Note: The examples used below are from QuaverMusic, but the same functionality is available in QuaverSEL and QuaverMIC curriculum resources as well.

Step One: Open a Student Recording Screen

You can begin the process on the Resource Creation menu in one of three places:

  1. Open Resource Creation directly from your Teacher Dashboard.
  2. Open Resource Manager, select a folder, and click MENU then NEW SCREEN.
  3. If you are in the process of editing a lesson or assignment, click MENU then NEW SCREEN.

Next, Select Student Recording from the Resource Creation menu to bring up your editing window.

Step Two: Title Your Screen 

  • Give your screen a title by clicking in the title text box labeled “Title” and typing your desired title.

You may also want to check out the options on the left side of your screen.

  • Click EDIT NOTES to add notes for your students to view when they launch this screen in their assignment
  • Clicking CANCEL on the left side of the screen will close the window without adding the screen to your assignment.

Step Three: Save and Launch

  • Click SAVE when you’re ready to save your screen.
  • To view your screen, head to your My Custom Screens folder in Resource Manager. This screen will remain in this folder in Resource Manager, ready to be added to an assignment or lesson at any time.
  • To see the screen in action, select the screen and click LAUNCH.
  • The screen that will appear in your lesson or assignment will launch to give you a preview of what you and your students will see.

Student View

For student-facing instructions on how to use the Student Recording Screen, please click here.

Students have different options based on the device they’re using.

If a student’s device has a built-in camera:

Devices that have built-in cameras or are connected to a webcam can record directly into the screen! The browser will prompt them to allow camera and microphone access. When the video is added, it will appear in your GradeBook for the assignment.

If a student’s device doesn’t have a camera:

If their device does not have a camera, they can record on another device! Click CHOOSE FILE to upload the recording here. Videos should be less than three minutes long and under 180 megabytes in size. When the video is added, it will appear in your GradeBook for the assignment.

Once students have submitted the assignment, you’ll find their submission in your GradeBook.

You’ll see an icon with an orange checkmark for the student and assignment whose submission you want to review. You can only view one student at a time.
