Uploading and sharing videos in the ePortfolio and giving and receiving feedback

Updated on

Students have to upload two videos of about 15-20 minutes during a class. These videos have to be shared with two other students and the lecturer. The students and the lecturer provide feedback with the help of a form. One can differentiate between the following (sub)tasks:

  • The uploading of two videos (student)
  • The sharing of these videos (student)
  • Providing feedback on the videos (other students and lecturer)
  • View/process the received feedback (student)

These four components will be discussed in this manual in a chronological order, assuming that the lecturer works at the Radboud University and has a Brightspace account. If the lecturer does not work at the university the process will be a bit different.
