How to Complete Q&A


Learners: explains the workflow you will follow to complete a Question & Answer Assignment. To ensure the best experience possible, please follow our Basic System Requirements.


  • When using an iPhone or iPad that has the most recent iOS software update installed (v.13) for a Q&A Video Assignment, users will not be able to complete the Q&A Questions. When trying to record, users will see a black screen in the recorder space, and then all functionality will cease.
  • Impacted users will need to complete Q&A Video Assignments using an iOS device below v.13, or use another type of device such as a PC, Mac, etc. 
  • Our development team is currently investigating a solution to this issue, and we will remove this notification when a resolution is released. If you would like to receive updates regarding changes made to the article, you may Follow this article to receive notifications.

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.

*Depending on how your instructor has set up your assignment, you may not see some of the steps below.

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


You can try out the Q&A recorder by toggling Practice. This is also a good opportunity to check that video and audio are working properly.



In rare instances, iOS users with Bluetooth headsets may have difficulties getting the recorder to recognize audio. If this happens to you, please try refreshing the page. If the issue persists, please try using your device’s built in microphone.

  Start Question

After clicking Start Question, the video/text question will appear and a timer will count down automatically*. You can skip the countdown and respond immediately by clicking Record

*Depending on your instructor's settings, the recording may start automatically.

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*. 

*If your instructor has enabled retakes, then you must manually submit your response.


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).


You also have the option to withdraw from a question. You will have to write a reason for withdrawing.


  Peer Review

When your instructor requires peer review, you will review their peers’ video responses.
