What is Bongo?

Bongo is a video assessment tool provided to Tufts faculty within Canvas. The integration allows you to create a a variety of different types of video assignments, and track student progress in the Canvas Grade book.

Bongo has a number of assessment methods you can utilize —

  • Individual Projects - students record video with both webcam and screen for assessment by the instructor, and, optionally, by peer reviewers
  • Group Projects - students collaborate on a project by recording video as a group either synchronously or asynchronously.
  • Question and Answer - instructors can create video scenarios, then require students to answer questions about them within a limited time frame. This is great for case studies or practice interviews.
  • Interactive Videos - allow the instructor to embed questions at specific points within a video, and give immediate feedback on student answers.
