When your instructor asks you to complete a video assignment, you may be unsure of a way to submit it. It is usually not possible to submit a video assignment via Moodle given the limited file size that is accepted (500MBs). Fortunately, as a student you have access to other resources to submit your assignment and this tutorial will demonstrate the best methods to do so.
All BU students have access to the full Office365 suite. This includes access to MS Stream, a video archival service where videos can be uploaded, shared and viewed.
How to upload and share a video using MS Stream
In MS Stream, click + Create at the top of the page and select “Upload video”
Click “browse” and select the video file you would like to upload. Then click “open”
Once your video has begun uploading you must give your professor permission to view it. This is a critical step. If you send your instructor the link without adding them to the list of users who have permission to view the video they will not be able to see it.
To give an instructor permission, open the “permissions” tab and type the name of your instructor in the box under “share with.” Select their account and ensure it is added to the list of viewers below.
Alternatively, if you want to give everyone in your class access, you can add your class Team to the list of users that have access. Instead of of searching for “people” this time search for “groups” and type the name of your class Team in the box under “share with.” Select the Teams site to add it to the permissions list.
Click the “Share” button to generate a link to your video. Copy this link and send it to your professor through whichever method they have specified. Once you have done this, click “Publish.”
Note that your video will only be visible to you and anyone you give permission to.
