Prompt & Response stage is the first learning stage the Learners participate in. This is where the Learners practice their skills. They watch a video prompt, read any instructions you provide, and then record their response to the prompt.
There are two ways to create a Prompt:
- Record a video within the platform with the Webcam
- Upload a video file from your computer
Record with Webcam
To record with the webcam, select the gray Webcam button.
A pop-up will appear. At this point, you should automatically see yourself on your screen. In the bottom left corner of the pop-up window there are three icons: a gear, a microphone, and a video camera.
If you select the gear icon you can switch recording from your computer to your phone if it is connected to your computer. The microphone and video camera icons indicate audio and lighting quality. If either icon is red, it means that either audio or the lighting quality is not good enough to record. If both icons are green then you are in the right conditions to record your response.
Select the blue Record button to start recording your Prompt.
When finished recording, select Stop to stop recording and upload the video. Select Cancel if you would like to cancel out of the webcam.
Once your video has uploaded and processed, select Keep For Now to use the video for your Prompt. If you would like to discard it and record a new video, select the gray Try Again button.
Upload a File
Choose a video file from your computer by selecting the gray Upload Video button. Currently, we accept .mov, .mp4, .WebM, .FLV, .avi video files and files up to 1GB in size.
Next, select the blue Upload File button.
Add any written instructions here. We encourage you to be as explicit as possible and reiterate any instructions you provide in the video itself. You can also add links to external or didactic resources.
Select the blue Save Changes button.
Select Next to move onto to creating a Model Response. If you don't want to include a Model Response, select the blue Publish Exercise button from the panel on the left hand side.
