Student-Created Media for D2L Course Assignments
Students can create videos using Kaltura and post them in their D2L courses in the same manner as instructors by following these step-by-step directions: Kaltura Overview for Students.
Note: Students will be able to post in discussion posts or assignment submission folders.
When adding video (required or optional) as part of a course assignment be sure that the technology does not change the overall outcome of the assignment. For example, in a writing course- if the assignment aims to assess student’s writing ability, creating a video would not meet the outcomes of assessing one’s writing ability. In this case, video could be used as an additional requirement to the written portion.
