Timely communication: how to capture and share media directly in Schoolbox

Communication is most effective when it is timely and relevant. So, when sharing the learning progression of your students, it is important to have the tools available on the go. Schoolbox understands this and for that reason, is equipped with the functionality to directly capture the learning progression of students through many media options including video, audio and image.

The file upload modal ‘Record’ in Schoolbox includes three ways to record: audio only, video or screen capture. 

There is no need to take a photo or record video on another device, you can do so directly in Schoolbox and upload instantly. There is no need to leave Schoolbox. 

Three ways to capture media in Schoolbox

A popular method to upload media in Schoolbox is via our Learning Moments feature. This feature enables students and teachers to share learning moments with parents and families as they happen. 

With direct capture of media available in Schoolbox, students and parents can readily take or record the learning moment as and when it happens and upload it, thereby sharing the important moment in a timely and relevant manner.
