How to view student grades and comments in Purdue’s Brightspace
You should receive feedback on practically every task in the form of a rubric, either in written or audio form, or a combination of the two.
But first, let’s define what a rubric is.
A grading tool known as a rubric reflects in a clear and concise manner the standards of expected performance for a certain assignment or piece of work. A rubric is a scoring guide that breaks down the work that has been delegated into its component pieces and offers detailed explanations of the aspects of the task that are linked with each component, grading them according to their respective degrees of expertise.

Tutorial on how to utilise Kaltura for your video projects.
You are able to upload movies to your Brightspace Purdue conversations and assignments with the use of the Kaltura platform. You are able to upload your movies to Kaltura in a risk-free manner, and restrict access to them so that just your teacher or only your instructor and classmates may see them.
Videos that you post through Kaltura to an assignment can only be seen by your teacher, but videos that you upload to a discussion can be viewed by everyone who has access to that discussion forum.
You will need to open the course in D2L Brightspace Purdue that you would want to submit your video for before you can log in.
When you are ready to turn in a video for an assignment, navigate to the appropriate module and click on the name of the task there. You may also locate the assignment by clicking the Course Tools button and then selecting Assignments from the drop-down menu that appears.
When you are ready to contribute a video to a discussion, navigate to the relevant section of the course and click on the name of the topic there. You may also discover the topic by clicking Course Tools and then selecting Discussions from the drop-down menu that appears.
To insert content into the submission area, click the button labelled “Insert Stuff” that is located towards the upper left corner of the text box.
Click Add Kaltura Media.
Near the top right of the screen, click the +Add New button, and then pick Media Upload from the drop-down menu that appears.

If you want to see all of the possible choices in the pop-up window, you might need to scroll. After that, your video will begin uploading.
If the page changes and you are unable to view the options for uploading content, you will need to refresh the screen and click the Add Stuff icon once again. It seems like your video was successfully uploaded.
Kaltura will do the processing on your video. Please be patient as Kaltura converts the video. It may take a few minutes. To monitor the status of the video conversion, use the “Refresh” icon located in the top right corner of the “Add Kaltura Media” page.
