Video Assignments that Assess More than Knowledge

Pharmacy students are expected to know more than just facts; being able to communicate that information is just as important. How could their instructors evaluate both knowledge and skills simultaneously, without increasing their own workloads?
The University of Queensland is one of the larger Australian institutions of higher education, with 50,000 students. They have been accustomed to working on the leading edge of educational technology; within the university, the School of Pharmacy is considered one of the most pioneering. One of the technologies the School of Pharmacy is most excited about is video. But while they may be willing to experiment, for very high stakes uses such as assessment, they needed a tool that is centrally supported. Through Kaltura, they were able to create video assignments requiring students to work together to teach the material they needed to know, simultaneously displaying their mastery of the material and their mastery of communication techniques.
