Learn more about Question & Answer here.
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.
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.
|Once recording, you have a limited time to respond. The time allotted is indicated in red the upper right hand corner of the video recorder.|
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.
When your instructor requires peer review, you will review their peers’ video responses.
