      TechSmith recommends that you create a gradebook item associated with the video before you release it to students. If you do not, D2L will create a grade item when the first student views the video; however, the grade item is by default not included in the Calculated Final Grade. (Please note, TechSmith updates D2L grade item information every 15 minutes.)
    • If you click the No button, D2L does not create a grade item. If at a later date you associate the media with a grade item, TechSmith does not update D2L and the grade item is not automatically updated. You must delete the media item and upload it again and select the Yes button above.
  5. The video will be added as a link to your content. Once students click on the link title, they will be taken to the video.
