You can record a video prompt or model response in Practice using a webcam. You can also upload a prerecorded video file from your computer and add a VTT caption file to your video. Once uploaded, the caption file will display a transcript of the video's dialogue in the learner's video player.

Note: If you need help creating a VTT caption file, you can use a captioning site such as Amara to create captions for your video files.
