Multiple camera assignments

This article is for Instructors. Click here for the student article.

The Multiple cameras setting allows participants to record multiple video streams at the same time.  As many as six presenters can join this type of recording.

To create a Multiple camera assignment,

  1. Click "Create Assignment" at the bottom of the assignment list on the left.
  2. Enter an Assignment Name.
  3. Leave the Assignment Type as "Standard."
  4. Check the box for "Multiple cameras."

  5. Select any additional settings, as needed.
  6. Click "Create Assignment."

Setting up groups


If the assignment is set to Private, then students can only join a recording if they are listed as a Presenter.  If this is the case, the student who starts the recording will need to add the other Presenters prior to clicking "Record."

To save time on presentation day, you can set these groups up beforehand.  To do this, click "Start Assignment," type in each of the student's names in the "Presenters" field, and click "Save for Later."

If you have created these groups previously, when students are ready to record, they will join the recording by clicking the "Join" button.

Critiquing a multiple camera recording


Giving feedback on a multiple camera recording is just like giving feedback on any other recording. To start, click the thumbnail of the video to begin playback. Then enter your feedback in the feedback panel on the right.  Please note that feedback and grades are visible to each Presenter in the group as a whole and cannot be given individually.
