How to Assign Student Videos
Video lessons are a great way to share engaging content with students. However, finding organized and easy ways to get students the content you want them to learn can get overwhelming. We've organized easy ways for you to share the video lessons inside Kodable and on your favorite teaching platforms.
Assign student videos inside Kodable
Video assignments allow you to share a video directly with students, allowing them to log in to their profile and get to the lesson or activity with one easy click.
Video assignments with Kodable can be either an instructional concept video or an activity video. Concept videos teach students about one of the coding concepts taught in Kodable, while activity videos provide instruction and prompt students to complete an activity either in a specified area of the game or off-screen (unplugged). These can be seasonal or just for fun!
