Use Cases

Here are just a few ideas to get started:

The acceptable formats are: asf, avi, flv, m4v, mov, mp4, m4a, 3gp, 3g2, mj2, wmv, mpg, mpeg, wma, mod, mp3, mts, qt, f4v, m2v, wepm, ogv, mxf, vob. Bongo offers unlimited cloud storage.

Once all video content is added, learners can combine videos into a single video file for submission.

Schedule Meetings

When completing an Individual Assignment, learners can schedule a meeting within our web-conferencing tool - Virtual Classroom. This tool serves as a meeting space to help learners complete their assignment.

Learners will have access to Virtual Classroom communication and presentation tools. These virtual meetings can also be recorded and submitted to the assignment.

Use Cases

Within Individual Assignment, here are a few ways learners can leverage Virtual Classroom:

  • interviews
  • business meetings
  • roleplay activities
  • foreign language conversations


Add Files/Links

Files and links can also be submitted. Max file size is 100MB. Allowed file types are doc, docx, xls, xlsx, pdf, txt, rtf, jpg, jpeg, png, bmp, zip, ppt, pptx

If a learner needs to submit an unsupported file type, the file(s) can be placed into a zip folder to upload.


Submit Assignment

Pro Tip

With Bongo's Auto Analysis™ feature, you can view analysis on every video added to the Work in Progress section before submitting to Individual or Group Assignment, giving you a chance to continuously self-assess, practice, and improve.

To submit, learners first need to move their completed items to the Submission box.

Please note, only one video can be submitted. If there is more than one video, the videos can be combined.


Peer Review
