The easiest way to comment: While watching the video, you can start posting your comment in the comment box.

Your comments are time coded to the video so your students can easily see the exact time in the video when you posted the comment.

- On the left side of the screen, you can grade your student's performance based on rubric
- On the right side of the screen, type an overall text comment on the assignment and click Post
Important: you are required to post the typed or video overall comment to trigger an automatic email notification to your student informing that his/her assignment has been reviewed by you.
Upon receiving the email notification, your students will view your comments. They can easily see your time-coded comments as caption at the bottom of the video.
Your students may reply to your comments if they need clarification or have questions. You can log back into your online dashboard anytime to view and answer their questions! Look specifically for the comments you posted that have replies.
Finally, if you are not satisfied with the assignment quality and would like the student to re-submit a better video, you can log into PitchVantage online dashboard > click Reports on top > Select the corresponding License Set # > click View under Assignments column > Find the assignment that you want the student to re-submit and clickicon under Action column.
