Submission Workflow Admin Guide for the LMS Video Assignments

Kaltura Video Submissions

For compliance reasons, Video Submissions may need to be blocked from editing or deletion. KAF Administrators have the ability to prevent embedded content/media from being deleted or edited across the board for LMS integrations. 

A configuration is available that allows users to indicate whether the content they are embedding is an assignment submission.

When a user indicates that they are submitting media as an assignment, the entry is cloned under a new user name ("OriginalUserName_assignment").

The cloned entry will not be available in My Media to edit or delete. This ensures that assignments are saved and cannot be edited or deleted.

Browse & Embed Pop-Up

When submitting media, administrator's the ability to create a popup to verify the submission.

Admin Configuration in the Browseandembed Module

 The KAF administrator can enable this feature in the Browseandembed module.

enableAssignmentSubmission – Select Yes to enable this option and add a pop up screen when selecting media in Browse, Search and Embed to verify if the user is submitting an assignment.

assignmentSubmissionText - The text that appears in the pop up. The default text is "Would you like to submit media as an assignment?" The text can may be modified in this field.

assignmentSubmissionMaxRole – Use to set the highest role level that should be able to see the pop up when selecting an entry in Browse, Search and Embed.

User Display for Submitting and Assignment

When the enableAssignmentSubmission is enabled and the user role is under the defined roles in the configuration, every time the user selects an entry to embed in Browse, Search and Embed, the following pop up is displayed:

Media is cloned and saved under a different user’s name and will not be available for use.

Dedicated Submission Embed 

Kaltura also offers a way to submit media as assignment without the Browse and Embed pop up message, by adding a dedicated Kaltura Embed button just for assignments.
Using this embed flow,  users will not be prompted to select whether this is an assignment or not, and instead, the entry will always be cloned.
