Assigning Video Lessons
How do I edit a video lesson I've already assigned?
You can edit the name of a video lesson, edit the text in a question/note, or duplicate/delete the video. It is not possible to change the correct answer choice in a multiple-choice question.
To edit an assigned video, follow these steps:
- Go to My Classes.
- Click on the video you’d like to edit.
- Click on the Edit Assigned Video button below the title of the video. From here you can either edit the name of the video, edit the text of a question or note, or duplicate/delete the video.
- Click on the Edit Name button.
- Click Change Name to save your changes.
Edit questions or notes
- Click on the pencil icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the question or note you’d like to edit.
- Click Save to make your changes.
- A pop-up window will appear to confirm your saved changes. Note: These changes will be applied to all the classes this video is assigned to.
Duplicate or Delete a video
- Click the ellipsis (...) button to the right of the Edit Name button.
- From here you can either choose to duplicate the video (to create a copy) or delete the video from your My Content page. Note: If you delete the video, student grades and progress related to this video will still be saved.
How do I assign a video lesson?
You can either assign each video individually or assign multiple videos at once. Here's how:
- Click on your "My Content" library from the menu on the left-hand side of your page.
- Check the box(es) below the video(s) you wish to assign.
- Select "Assign" from the bottom menu.
- Choose the classes you want to assign the video to. By default, the "Assign all" option will be selected which assigns the video to all the students in your selected class(es), including any students who may join your class in the future.
- If you only want to assign the video to certain students in your class, check the box for the class you're interested in and choose the "Assign manually" option. Then you can select the specific students to assign your video to. (Please note that this option isn't available for LMS-integrated classes.)
- Add a start date and due date (if necessary) and choose if you want to prevent skipping or turn on closed-captioning.
- Click "Assign" and you're done!

How are my assigned video lessons organized?
You can find the video lessons you’ve assigned by choosing the class in question from the list under “My Classes” in your left-hand menu.
Once there, you’ll see all assignments listed in order of due date. Oldest due dates are towards the top of the list and then assignments with no due date towards the bottom.
To learn how to set a due date, check out this article.
Assignments on this page fall into three categories:
- In Progress
Assignments will fall under this category if the start date has passed and the due date is in the future, or if you still have answers to grade (whether the due date has passed or not). Assignments with no due date will also appear under this category until all students have completed them.
- Upcoming Assignments
Assignments will fall under this category if the start date is in the future.
- Graded and Completed
Assignments will fall under this category if the start and due dates have passed and you don’t have any pending answers to grade.
To narrow down your view or your search for a particular assignment, use the filters towards the top of your page: All, Due Date, No Due Date, Pending to grade, and Completed. Click on one of these options to see only that type of assignment.
