When creating a new Submit assignment, you have the option to choose which type of assignment you would like to create. Here are the differences between each type of assignment:
- Screen + Webcam recording: A video submitted to this type of assignment will include a computer's webcam AND screen, as well as the audio recorded by the microphone. This type of assignment does not support mobile devices such as cell phones and iPads, so if you believe that students will be accessing a Submit assignment from their phone or tablet, please choose the "Webcam recording only" option.
- Webcam recording only: A video submitted to this type of assignment will use a computer's webcam or mobile device's camera to record the audio and visual of a person speaking into the camera. They are great for capturing reflections or group discussions.
- Screen recording only: A video submitted to this type of assignment will include everything on a computer's screen, as well as the audio captured by the microphone. They are perfect when you want students to record a presentation or explain any digital work, but they cannot be used with mobile devices or iPads.
Screen Recording Only Tips
While using a screen recording, please have students choose "Your Entire Screen." They must click on the screen they would like to record before they can click "Share."
Note: Please do NOT choose "Share audio" from this screen. If you choose "Share audio," the computer immediately begins searching for audio coming from the computer and will shut down the recording in a few seconds if audio is not playing.
