Extempore Sync allows teachers to group students into breakout rooms within Extempore. Room recordings begin automatically when the first student joins.
Provide a task to assess or have students practice interpersonal communication.
Provide individual feedback or grades when you include a rubric.
Note: students must be enrolled in your class prior to creating the synchronous group assignment.
Groups Size: 2-6
Recording Type: Video
Maximum Recording Length: 10, 15, 20 Minutes
Supported Devices: Laptop or Desktop Computer running Google Chrome (The first version of synchronous groups is not supported for the Extempore mobile app due to limitations of our video conference provider) If students are still having issues with Chrome, please see our troubleshooting article.
Step 1: Select Group as Your Assessment Type
Step 2: Select Yes for Synchronous Room
Step 3: Set maximum recording time (5, 10 or 15 minutes)
Set group of 2 to 6 students per room. (Groups will be formed automatically and can be manually rearranged.)
Step 4: Add a task for students to discuss when they connect. Launch when done.
