Students will need to transfer video files off of their video capture device.
Students are recommended to transfer video files onto a portable storage device that will provide them access to modify and save the file during video trimming, video compressions, and for preserving backup copies.
The following storage devices are recommended:
Students are also highly recommended to work off of a copy of the original video, do not save over the original file.
After students have captured raw video required for video artifacts, there are several steps necessary to prepare the file for submission into the portfolio.
We recommend the following technical requirements for video capture as defined by Pearson in the edTPA materials:
Resolution size: 320x240 or 640x480
First, consider that the video file you upload must be continuous, with no interruption in the events; you cannot cut out portions of the video. If the recorded video files are longer than the required length specified by edTPA, the video will need to be trimmed. Windows Movie Maker is the recommended software used for this step. This software is available on all campus labs' PCs. Click the link below for step by step instructions on how to trim your video file.
The target file size for video artifacts is 100MB. Students will not be able to upload a video artifact larger than 100MB. Handbrake is the recommended compression software. This software is available on all campus lab PCs. Click the links below for step by step instructions on how to compress your video file to an appropriate size.
If you need to merge multiple documents together in order to meet the edTPA requirements, you may copy and paste your content into one file. If there is too much information to copy and paste, please refer to this guide: How to merge multiple word documents into one
If you need to split a PDF file into multiple files, please refer to this guide: How to split PDF files
Once the video artifact has been modified to the required length and size, the file will need to be uploaded into your edTPA Portfolio. Click the links below for Tk20 resources on attaching artifacts to your edTPA Portfolio and video upload guidelines.
