How do I record audio feedback for my students' assignments?

On the assignments submission feedback page, you can use the Record Audio button to quickly record your feedback regarding a student paper, but your students may struggle to access the recordings you create this way. This audio recording option, called Audio Note, saves your audio feedback as files your students must download to, locate on, and open on their own computers.

Recording your audio feedback using MU Video will require from you more clicks during the recording process, but your students will have no trouble listening to the feedback you record.
