Video Note

Goal

After reviewing this how-to you will have the ability to create a Video Note that can be added to your Assignment submission or Discussion thread in your Brightspace course. The Video Note feature allows you to record a video of yourself that is up to three minutes long.

There are two options for adding a Video Note to your Assignment submission or Discussion thread. 

Option 1:  You can add the Video Note within the content of the Comments section of your Assignment submission or the content of your Discussion thread.

Option 2:  You are also able to add the Video Note recording as the file for your Assignment submission or attach the file to your Discussion thread (similar to how a file would be attached to an email).

For information on how to navigate to an Assignment page in Brightspace, please review the Accessing the Assignments Page guide. For information on how to navigate to Discussion topics in Brightspace, please review the Accessing Discussion Topics guide.
