With MyVRSpot's Video Response System, you can create assignments made up of a series of prompts, to which your students can respond. Each prompt you create can have an associated media item for students to view. Students can then respond in a variety of ways: text, video, audio, image, and more! Read on for some helpful tips to get you started!
Create an Assignment
Step 1: Login to your MyVRSpot account and click VRS > Create Assignment.
Step 2: Fill in the Assignment Details fields.
Step 3: Select your Assignment Advanced Settings:
Step 4: Select your Assignment Sharing Settings:
Step 5: Click the green Create and Add Prompts button.
Continuing from the steps above, you’ll now see a screen where you can Add or Remove Prompts. You can either Add a New Prompt or you can Add an Existing Prompt. If you want to Add an Existing Prompt, you can select from prompts you have already created or used on other assignments.
If you choose to Add a New Prompt then you can start by typing your first prompt into the text editor. You can then select whether or not you want to attach a media item to the prompt. If you select the radio button to attach a media item then a green Select Media button will appear. Click on the green Select Media button to attach a piece of media to your prompt (video, audio file, image, document, etc.).
Next, you will need to specify the type of responses you would like from your students. You can select more than one if you prefer. This allows your students to respond in a variety of ways, such as: Text, Video, Image, Audio, MediaSpot Project, or Other File (pdf, doc, etc.).
*Note that students can only respond to each prompt in one way, even when they have more than one option.
The last two items you must specify is whether or not the prompt is required to complete the VRS assignment and whether you would like to assign a Numeric Point Value to the prompt.
Finally, click the green Create button. Add as many Prompts as you’d like and when you are finished, you can select the yellow Save and Continue Later button or the green Publish Assignment button.
