Audio/Video Submissions in Quiz in iOS App

Follow

Right now, we are unable to make audio/video submissions to short answer quiz questions in the iOS app, because we get a message that flash is required. We can obviously record audio and submit videos in assignments, but not in Quizzes. Our World Languages and English teachers would love to be able to have students record their speaking and submit it to a timed quiz question, for example. Will this be possible in the future as Schoology transitions away from Flash?

    Hi all, 

    While you can use this function by enabling Flash, I'm happy to announce that the HTML5-based Audio/Video recorder is now In Development on our Product Roadmap! This will replace the existing Flash-based Audio/Video recorder.

    In order to follow the progress of items on our roadmap, click Follow on each section of the roadmap:

    In Research

    In Development 

    Completed

    Check the Product Roadmap for any updates about this feature. Please note that the development, release, and timing of any products, features, or functionality remains at the sole discretion of Schoology and is subject to change.

    As a World Language teacher, this would be the most useful feature I can think of for simulating real conversations and moving students ever closer to oral proficiency.

    I'd love to be able to use this feature with my EFL students. :) Please make it available on both iOS and Android, though.

    This would be great. I want to use quizzes for students to record short sung exercises as quizzes.

    This is essential to my 1:1 iPad students in foreign languages.

    I would love to incorporate this feature with my students in English class. Just today, a student that speaks another language fluently needed help with words from a short story like "pram, batman, bonny," etc.

    I would like to voice my fervent support for the use of a different or additional player for audio/video quiz submissions on ipad.  It is very time consuming in the class room to ask an oral response from every student every time.  This feature would allow me to record a conversation starter and listen to each one's response individually.

    Yimei,

    This is the information from the roadmap you said we need to go to:

    Upload audio/video files to question responses

    You can use these same steps above to add audio/video files to question response options for the Multiple Choice, True/False, Matching, Ordering, Fill in the Blank Drag and Drop, and Label Image question types.

     

    How is this helpful for a student to add an audio response to any of these question types? These question types already have set possible answers! We need the ability to add audio as the answer - what am I missing here?

    Hi Ms. Norris, 

    Thank you for your feedback. 

    This post is regarding submissions to Test/Quizzes from the iOS app. Currently, students are able to submit audio/visual recordings as responses to Test/Quizzes if the permission Allow video or audio answers has been enabled for the question. Unfortunately, this function does not work unless Flash is enabled as well. My response refers to our move away from Flash and to HTML5, which will allow students to easily submit audio/visual recordings as responses on the iOS app. 

    I see that you have already commented on the existing request to have this functionality for Assessments. Please rest assured that your feedback has been received. 

    Best,
