Submission Workflow Admin Guide for the LMS Video Assignments

KAF Administrators have the ability to prevent embedded video submissions from being edited or deleted across the board for LMS integrations. 

There are two ways to enable this submission workflow - 

Both ways allow a user to submit media as an assignment. Upon doing so, the entry is cloned under a new user name ("OriginalUserName_assignment"). The cloned entry is not available in My Media, ensuring that the assignment cannot be edited or deleted.

Browse & Embed Pop-Up

When submitting media, Administrators have the ability to create a pop-up 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 pop-up. Every time a user selects an entry to embed in Browse, Search and Embed, the pop-up is displayed.

assignmentSubmissionText - Type the text that displays inside the pop-up. The default text is "Would you like to submit media as an assignment?"

assignmentSubmissionMaxRole – Select the highest role level for which the pop-up displays when selecting an entry in Browse, Search and Embed.

End User Experience

If the enableAssignmentSubmission is enabled and the user's role is under the defined assignmentSubmissionMaxRole, every time the user selects an entry to embed in Browse, Search and Embed, the following pop up displays:

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

Dedicated Submission Embed

As an alternative to enabling the Browse and Embed pop up message, Administrators can add a dedicated Kaltura Embed button just for assignments. Using this embed flow, users are not prompted to select whether this is an assignment or not. Instead, the entry is always cloned. 

Canvas
