This guide will step you through how to submit a video assignment. There are different types of video assignments, so use this guide only if your lecturer has pointed you to this page.
Videos can be created in a number of different ways, such as using a video camera or your smartphone. Videos created in this way come as files that might have a .mov, .mp4, .wmv or .avi extension. Most video types can be uploaded to LEO using Kaltura. LEO also has some tools to help with video creation and management:
My Media can be used to upload videos into LEO, manage these videos, and also provide simple editing features.
Kaltura Capture is available as a downloadable application to create screen, voice and webcam recordings.
With the steps below, either have your video file ready on your computer, or have it already uploaded into your My Media library.
Log into LEO, navigate to your unit and click on your assessment submission link.
Click on the 'Add submission' button:
In the Online Text submission option click the 'Embed Kaltura Media' button (the last button on the first row):
A popup window will appear which displays your My Media Library.
If you have already uploaded your video into your My Media Library, it will appear in your list of videos. Skip to step 9.
If you need to upload a new video file into LEO, move to step 4.
Click the 'Add New' button and select the 'Media Upload' option:
Click the 'Choose a file to upload' button.
Select the video file from your computer that you want to submit.
The file will begin uploading, and the status of the upload is shown as a progress bar. When the upload is complete, the status turns green and the message 'Upload Completed' appears.
Edit the name, description and tags (optional) for the video, then click the 'Save and Embed' button:
If you are using an existing video, you may need to select a size for your video. Click the drop-down arrow next to the 'Select' button and choose one of the size options, or just click the Select button to choose the default size:
On the following preview screen, click the 'Embed media' button in the bottom-left of the window (this can be hard to read):
You will be taken back to the Online Text box. The video name appears here in a single line of text as a link. Click the 'Save changes' button to complete the assignment submission:
You should now see the video preview in the 'Submission status' section of the assignment link. If you video is large, it may still be processing, and you may see a "Video processing" animation temporarily until it has finished.
