How do I upload my first video assignment?

To upload a video assignment follow these steps, as always you can reach out if you need any help with any of these steps:

  1. In Camtasia when you have a final product after recording and editing, click the "Share" button then save as "local file". This will save a .mp4 video to your computer. We recommend Camtasia but you can use any screen capture software, just look for an option to export a .mp4 version of the video.
  2. Log into your account at www.heatspring.com/account, then in the upper right hand corner under your name choose "Admin Home".
  3. You should see the course listed on your admin dashboard, if not you can always click the blue "Manage Courses" tab to see all courses.
  4. Click the "classroom" button next to your course.
  5. Click "+ New Assignment" in the module where you'd like to add the assignment. 
  6. Enter a title and optional description, then choose the assignment type of "Video". 
  7. It will then ask you to select a file, you'll select the local .mp4 file you created in the first step. It will take a while to upload the file and you have to stay on the page.
  8. Click "Create Assignment" when the upload completes and the button reappears. After you click create, it will then do some additional processing of the video in the background. You can leave the page or the site at that point. After a few minutes the video should start working on the assignment.
