For the First Time, Instructors Can Create Secure Video Assignments through the LMS

While Echo360 has been integrated with the LMS assignment tool for some time now, our new Secure Video Assignments capability gives instructors more flexibility when creating student video assignments using the LMS, with an option to lock the video submission to editing.

“Instructors have told us that the problem with leveraging student videos for LMS assignments has been the the lack of content control. Video assignments are typically larger files that are embedded in an LMS, and as such, students have had the ability to continue to edit after the assignments have been submitted,” said Bill Holding, EVP of product at Echo360. “We listened to this feedback and worked closely with instructors to design a smarter workflow that supports their assignment requirements. Our solution provides the ability for instructors to lock these videos once they’ve been submitted, effectively providing a secure option for reviewing and assessing student video that’s consistent with their grading expectations.”

Echo360 is the first – and only – video platform to provide the instructors with the option to secure student-generated videos during the grading process, in response to demand from higher education leaders.
