Student video/audio file upload
Students can individually upload a video or audio recording to Re:View. This could be a presentation, instructional video, screencast, or oral submission.

The folder is simply a space that students can upload recordings to - similar to a Dropbox or OneDrive folder. For example, students could upload:
- Practise recordings before a summatively assessed piece of work.
- A screen recording of an equation they are finding tricky.
- An audio recording of themselves speaking in a foreign language for feedback on their accuracy.
- A proposal for a project.
