Creating an Activity for Students to Upload and Analyze Video

Instructors can assign activities that ask students to upload and analyze their own video. Teachers can either use (or modify) one of the pre-made activities in the Pivot Interactives Library, or create their own activity.

1. Use a Pre-made Video-Upload Activity

  1. Use the tag search in the Pivot Interactives library to search for Video Upload
  2. Find the activity *Analyzing Motion with Constant Velocity (Video Upload)
  3. Copy it to your My Library
  4. Open the activity in edit mode
  5. Modify (Optional)
  6. Save
  7. Assign the activity

2. Create a new Activity using the *Student Instance Upload* Component

  1. Go to My Library and click +Create New Activity
  2. Enter text in the Activity Info and Objectives as you normally would.
  3. Add a section, and enter text in the Name and Summary fields.
  4. Select the Student Instance Upload component, and click Add Component.
  5. You may want to add a link to the student instructions for video upload in your instructions for the activity. Here is the url to that page: https://help.pivotinteractives.com/docs/students-uploading-video
  6. Add other components and text as needed.
  7. Save the activity.
