The scenario

The scenario

Level 2 Childcare course

Design an active assessment which would meet these criteria

P5: Demonstrate understanding of how to interact and communicate with adults

P6: Describe a policy in a child care setting that concerns confidentiality and the sharing of information

M4: Explain why it is important to have a policy with respect to confidentiality and the sharing of information in a child-care setting


The assignment

The assignment

Working in groups of three make a video of one of these scenarios:

Telling a parent their child has nits

Dealing with a parent who needs a phone number

Witnessing an accident outside the childcare setting


The solution 1

The solution: #1

Use the existing Blackboard Assignment tool


The results 1

The results: #1

Poor user experience for students uploading large video files

Lecturer did not have space to download large video files

Blackboard course archives became very large!


The solution 2

The solution: #2

Students still upload videos to Blackboard using Assignment tool

Once the due date has passed ILT Team uploads on bulk to college video system

Lecturer watches videos on video system

Assignment files removed from Blackboard to save space


The video system

The video system

Planet eStream launched at CCN


The video uploads

The video uploads

Use Assignment File Download in Grade Centre

Bulk upload videos to eStream with common name tag – course ID

Make videos private to the lecturer


Watching the videos

Poor user experience for students uploading large video files

Much easier for lecturer to watch videos, but not tracked to specific student

Course archives no longer growing

Needs manual process from ILT Team


The solution 3

The solution: #3

Students upload video to eStream

Students use MashUp tool to add video to Assignment

Lecturer watches video directly in Grade Centre


The solution 31

The solution: #3

Students upload video to eStream


The solution 32

The fix

The fix

Embed code needed to be white listed in Safe HTML Filter

Go to System Admin > Safe HTML Filters > Safe HTML Filter for Content Editor

Download default-policy.xml; add line:

<regexp value="http[s]?://estream.ccn.ac.uk/.*" />


The solution 36

The solution: #3

The results 3

The results: #3

Much better user experience for students; upload shows progress bar

Much easier for lecturer to watch videos, and now clearly linked to student

Large videos not stored on Blackboard

No assistance needed from ILT Team


The lecturer feedback

The lecturer feedback

Marking process was very simple

Although 85% of students have a smart phone (May 2013) some borrowed flip cams for better quality

Students used Microsoft Movie Maker to add music, transitions, titles etc


The lecturer feedback1

The lecturer feedback

Students with less confidence could make audio recordings or use visual aids

Self-selected groups allowed lecturer to get to know group dynamics of new class

Blackboard was invaluable in managing submissions – 148 students in year group


The lecturer feedback2

The lecturer feedback

Students enjoyed the assignment – fun ‘ice breaker’ first task – happier to complete subsequent written tasks

Students complained about eStream but actually enjoyed it more than written task in previous year

Students learnt technical skills: useful life skills about video recording and editing


The improvements

The improvements

Give a time limit for videos – some took too long to mark!

Don’t assume ‘digital natives’ know about video editing – more guidance needed on file formats, sizes etc

Try Group Assignments to avoid duplicated uploads
