What is it?

Video Assignments give you the flexibility to incorporate new types of assessments into your courses, such as real-world simulations, role-play scenarios, debates, peer reviews, and other creative ways to evaluate your students. After an individual completes a video exercise, they submit their recording for personalized coaching and feedback from their instructor and peers.

How do I use it?

Video Assignments are available in every Brightspace course site.  To add a video assignment, visit the Content tool, and then add an Existing Activity.  You can learn more on our instruction page.
