There are different types of video assignments, so use this guide only if your lecturer has pointed you to this page.

As video files are often too large to upload directly to LEO assignments, you should:

  1. Upload your video to a streaming video platform such as Echo360, YouTube or as directed by your tutor.
  2. Add a link to or embed the video in the Online Text submission option in your assignment.

Videos can be created in a number of different ways, such as using a video camera or your smartphone. Most video types can be uploaded to any of the above systems. ACU also has Echo360, which can be used to upload and store videos, and you can download Echo360 Universal Capture to create videos on your computer.
