Basic Questions and Answers about Video Assignments

Basic Question

Brief Answer

What is the goal of Video Assignments in the course?

The goal is to be careful in watching the videos so you are factually accurate in writing about changes over time.


You are not writing a summary of each of the video. The purpose is to see how history changes on some issue during the time period covered by the Unit.

How can students download and upload the file with very brief questions they answer.

1.    You download the file from the Video Assignment (a Blackboard tool).

2.    You view the videos listed in the file.

4.    You return to the same place where you downloaded the file and upload your completed one.
