Your students can also now record practice sessions in audio and video, save, and it automatically uploads to your file area in a sub-folder with the correct permissions. Students can also access other files shared with them by you.

    Is there a video demo of this feature?

    I’m unsure what is meant by “uploads to your file area in a sub-folder with the correct permissions.” Who determines the correct permissions?
    I don’t see a place in the app where I can assign a recording to a particular student so is this going out to all students, remaining private, or? Same question on when a student uploads. Does it go under their account? Is their name on it automatically? or is it a public file for all to see?
    Thanks.

    This looks like a really awesome new feature that many of my students can benfit from. One question. Is it also possible to also do these audio/video recordings from a PC or Mac computer?

    Hi Maria,

    We will have video demos for these features in the near future.

    Permissions are managed by teachers in the File Area itself, by clicking Edit on an item. If you upload an audio or video recording, it will be private to you until you choose to make it available to one, several, or all your students.

    You currently can not assign a recording to a particular student. You can share one with them using the instructions above.

    For when the student uploads, yes it goes under their account. Their name is added to the filename as a suggestion but can be overwritten, however, it is saved in a folder that has their name on it. No, it is not public. Nothing becomes available on your website or publicly.

    I hope that answers all your questions!

    Hi Marcus,

    The audio and video recording feature is currently only for the mobile apps. You will see the files you record on your desktop version once uploaded, but you can not actually record audio or video with out the app.

    If you would like to see audio and video recording implemented for desktop, please suggest it here: http://mth.uservoice.com/forums/116093-submit-your-ideas-here

    If we receive enough requests for it, we’ll develop it and you will be notified once it’s live. Thanks, Marcus!
