Where Can you go for Help?

Location and Contact Information

The ITS Service Center

W203 Thompson Hall

(716) 673-3407


What can we help with?

    1. iPads
    2. Cameras
    3. Tripods
  • Uploading your video to Google Drive
  • Editing of the video

What can’t we help with?

  • Figuring out specific edTPA requirements. That is best left to your Professors
  • Helping submit your project to the EdTPA website

Checkout Procedures

  • iPads may only be checked out for a maximum of 2 weeks straight.
  • Once iPads are returned, there is a 24 hour wait period before they can be checked out again by the same user to ensure that all students have access to an iPad.
  • Once the iPad is handed over, all of the information on the iPad is going to be lost. Our office will be clearing all videos, and logging out of all Google Drive sessions.

Tip ** If you need to borrow an iPad from the Service Center, please check that the iPad has the edTPA folder which contains the MoviePro, Photos, and GDrive apps. Also, confirm the MoviePro settings at the time of checkout. It is a good idea to ensure that you can log into FREDsecure and your Google account before leaving the Service Center. Those behind the counter will be able to assist you with all of this.

  • Do NOT edit any of this video other than trimming the beginning or the end.

Setting Up Your Room

  • Frame the entire front of the room
  • Move around naturally
  • Students should be in the shot

Your Video is Ready - What Now?

Storing your Video

  • Do NOT upload your video to YouTube
  • Use on of the following for storage:
    1. Google Drive
    2. Dropbox
    3. OneDrive
    4. Flash Drive

Uploading Video to Pearson

  • Make sure to review the video before submitting. Watch the entire video as this is an important submission and you may have missed something initially
  • When uploading, it is recommended to do this from a wired internet connection.
    1. It is faster to upload the large file on a wired connection
    2. It is less likely to fail due to connection errors
