Taking a photo as an option with assignments and test.

I would like to add the option of taking a photo in the richtext-editor in assignments and test.

A student can add a video and/or an audio recording as an answer to assignments or an open test question.

But in some cases students need to write ore draw an answer on paper. It would be easy if the student could take a photo with the camera of his/her device and submitted the photo as an answer.

Now I work around this problem by asking students tot email a photo of their written answer or make a video whiles holding the written answer 10+seconds in front of the camera.

The workaround isn’t elegant taking a photo is.

    We have improved the resolution for attached images. On tablets and phones students can take a photo directly when they attach a file. We are not planning the option to take a photo via the webcam of a laptop.

    I actually just requested an "upload file" for an answer test question style. It would greatly increase the content would could asses on the platform.

    Yes! The student could easily hold up their paper to the camera on their computer and take a quick picture.

    This would be a great addition to turning in assignments.

    I agree. But be carefull. I used Photo's as attachment. Resolution of these pictures is very bad. It's not caused by bad resolution of original sources, it's caused by itslearning itself. I tried myself with very good pictures of text, not readable after sending tot itslearning.
