Assignment submissions : Cloud Poodll Assignment Submission - audio and video assessments
Cloud Poodll Assignment Submission makes collecting, storing, and playing student audio and video assignments effortless. Although the Moodle Assignment activity allows file submissions (including audio and video) from students, this is often impractical. Files may be submitted in formats that the teacher cannot open easily. Some formats produce very large files that exceed upload limits or bloat course backup sizes.
All of these issues are avoided when using Cloud Poodll Assignment Submission. Poodll handles recording, storage, transcoding, and playback to ensure that technical issues do not interfere with the submission and evaluation of student work.
Cloud Storage of Recordings
Native Moodle Assignment
Not satisfied, with a one size fits all recorder? Neither are we. We give you choices on the recorder you use, what it looks like and how it behaves.
Oral presentations have become a common means of assessing students' understanding of the topics covered in a course of study. However, it is not always practical for each student to present live to their teachers and peers. Recorded audio and
video submissions allow asynchonous assessment of presentations, allowing teachers to preserve valuable instruction time. Cloud Poodll Assignment Submission is perfect for remote learning contexts in which learners lack the opportunity to
present in a shared physical space.
In language learning contexts, teachers are always searching for new opportunities to get their students speaking. Recorded mini-assignments give language learners the opportunity to practice basic skills such as self-introductions or presenting a unique aspect of their culture or homeland. Intermediate or advanced students might record extended monologues or unscripted conversations with classmates for assessment by the teacher.
