What is the DC Connect Video Assignment Tool?

The Video Assignment tool in DC Connect allows faculty to create individual projects and assignments for your students to complete virtually (asynchronous).  You can use Video Assignments to facilitate individual presentations, mock job interviews, repeated skill practice, and peer-to-peer collaboration. Once students complete a Video Assignment, they submit their recording to the instructor for review and grading.
