If reviewing an already recorded video, you'll be taken to the feedback panel alongside the video playback where you can enter feedback according to the options set for the Activity. As soon as you start typing text or adding any other type of feedback, the video will stop automatically. It will start again when you press the Enter key or finish your comments.
If reviewing a live presentation, you'll be taken to a similar screen, only you'll see a timer instead of a video in the video panel. That way you'll be able to keep your eyes on the actual presenter. If you are viewing a live recording remotely there is a toggle switch on the bottom left that will toggle the live stream on and off.
How do I enter timeline comments?
To enter a comment, just type it in the Comment box (lower right) on the playback screen and press Enter. The comment is saved to the appropriate spot on the timeline.
If you're commenting on a recorded video, then the video player will stop automatically whenever you start typing a comment. It will resume playing when you press Enter.
How do I add a video comment?
To add a video comment, go to the appropriate spot in the video you are critiquing and click the Record, Upload, or YouTube icon.
Once you finish recording or uploading your video comment it will automatically be saved to the comment timeline. You may optionally add text comments beneath your video comment.
How do I add an audio comment?
To add an audio comment, click the Audio button. Record your comments and click Stop when you are done. The audio comment will be automatically saved to the comment timeline. You may optionally add text comments beneath your audio comment.
How do I add a marker?
To add a marker, all you need to do is click on the colored icon below the feedback panel. For more information about markers, see Creating and Using Markers in Video Assessments.
How do I add a comment from my library?
To add a comment you have previously uploaded to your library, click the Library button and select the appropriate item. It will be automatically saved to the comment timeline.
What is an "End Note"?
End Comments are longer, final comments that allow you to summarize your observations. They may be up to 2,000 characters long and will appear at the end of the comment list on the video.
To enter an End Comment, click the End Note button.
How do I edit a comment I've already posted?
Click the Edit button next to any text comment to edit it. While editing your text you may also change its position in the timeline by clicking on the time stamp at the top left corner of the feedback panel. Then use the slider or +/- buttons to move it to the desired point in time and click the Save Change button. You may also delete any comment by clicking the Delete button next to it.
Who can enter comments?
In addition, instructors can give permission for peers or the presenters themselves to critique the video as well. These permissions are controlled in the Activity Settings for the Activity the video belongs to. For more information about setting up these options see How to Create a video assessment.
Using rubric evaluations
If the rubric contains "points" items, the scoring will update automatically as you select items.
When you have completed your evaluation, click the Post button at the top to post your evaluation.
If your evaluation is incomplete, simply click Exit but don't Post. Your responses are auto-saved and will be available the next time you return to that video.
Note: For more on Rubrics see How to use the Rubric Feature.
