A step by step guide on what our multimedia recorder is and its usage case for teachers and students.

Updated over a week ago


In this article we will walk you through how to use FeedbackFruits' multimedia recorder.

Our multimedia recorder allows a teacher or student to record video, audio or their screen wherever they can upload a video or file across our tool suite. You can find the multimedia recorder in different parts of FeedbackFruits tools, such as when writing a comment (both in discussions or review comments) or making a submission.

How Does It Work?

Our multimedia recorder allows for recording of audio, video, screen or a combination of these sources to quickly compose a video or audio clip; this clip can either be handed in by a student as part of an assignment, or shown to students by a teacher to guide their learning.

When using the screen recording feature, you have the option to present the information shown on your screen alongside your webcam feed. This webcam view can be toggled, resized and moved depending on your needs - simply click and drag inside of the camera bubble to move it around, or resize it by clicking and dragging on the edge of the bubble.

You can also change input devices while the recording is running - this is ideal for situations where you would want to switch between the front and rear camera of a device.

Our recorder pauses by default when opening - so you don't have to worry about being caught off guard! You can compose yourself and change any settings as needed before starting the recording.

Good to Know

  • Some LMS, such as Moodle, don't allow FeedbackFruits to access your microphone or camera - make sure to open the page in a new tab to record a video if you are facing permission issues.

  • If you wish to record your screen without a camera overlay, you can toggle the camera feed to off under the Recorder Settings.

  • Some browsers and operating systems may face issues when a camera is being used by multiple applications at the same time - if you're having permission issues, try closing any other applications that may be using your camera.
