How to Complete Q&A


This article explains the workflow learners will follow to complete a Question & Answer Assignment. Overview of how to practice Q&A questions, how to share presentations in Q&A, and how to retake Q&A responses.

To ensure the best experience possible, please follow our Basic System Requirements and Check your System Before Completing your Video Assignment.

Completing a Q&A will help you think critically on your feet and test your knowledge of a subject. You will be presented with prompts and given a set amount of time to respond. You will only have one opportunity to answer each prompt, replicating the high-stakes environment of being asked questions in a face-to-face setting. The steps below* outline how to complete this type of assignment.

For a preview of this workflow, view the video below. Please note, there is no voiceover for this video.

If finished before the time is up, click STOP in the bottom left corner of the video recorder. The video response will be submitted automatically*.

In most cases, you will not be allowed to pause or restart the assignment. You will have only one chance to answer each question. If needed, contact your instructor to have them reset your response.


This process continues until you have answered all the questions.

Once processed, your video responses are visible to the instructor (and your peers if peer review is enabled).


If the option for screen recording is enabled for an assignment, you will be prompted to activate your camera, microphone, and choose a screen or application to share before you can begin the Q&A question.
