Having the raw video footage available until you receive official scores from Pearson may be helpful. Keeping your files organized and easily accessible will save you time in the long run. Here’s one example of how to organize your files:
When transferring video to the drive it is best to be on campus or somewhere that has a very fast internet connection or it could take several hours to do so.
The Projects Drive should appear as a network drive on any General Access Computer on campus.
On a Mac, the drive should appear on the desktop and be labeled Projects. Simply click on the drive, navigate to the edTPA folder and find your folder. You're ready to move files in and out of your Projects Drive space.
On a Windows computer, go to the Computer; one of the attached drives should be labeled P. That's the Projects Drive. Double click to open the drive, navigate to the edTPA folder and find your folder. You're ready to move files in and out of your Projects Drive space.
Be aware, this method for accessing the Projects Drive works fine for documents and images. It may not work well for video files unless you have a very fast internet connection. There is also a limit as to the file size you can transfer. If your video file is larger than 3 GB, this method will probably not work. You will need to come to campus to transfer very large files.
Start a browser (try Chrome, Safari or Internet Explorer). In the URL address bar, type https://students.uwec.edu and hit return. You should see a dialogue box asking for your university user name and password. Then you should see your files listed. On the right side should be the contents of your H drive. You should see listed on the left all the campus drives you have access to. One of the drives should be the P drive. Click on that, navigate to 2165.edTPA, go to either the ES or SPED folder (whichever is appropriate to you) and locate the folder with your user name. Open your folder. Look up and you should see icons/controls for uploading, downloading, renaming and deleting files. You should be able to manage your files once you get here. Once you are done using the Projects Drive, click on your name in the upper right corner to close the Projects Drive. If you follow the directions and you have trouble uploading or deleting files or get odd error messages, quit the browser you are using and try another browser--that might work.
Once you have your video shot, you need to make video clips that meet the specifications of your handbook. The clip requirements (number of clips, length and what should occur in the clips) vary by the handbook. Make sure to read your handbook carefully.
If you are coming to campus or own a Mac, we strongly suggest using QuickTime for speed and simplicity. You don't need to have any skills with video and there are only a couple of steps involved. Keep in mind that you should never create your clips directly from the Projects drive. Always copy your file(s) from the Projects Drive to the desktop and then start creating your clips.
Three common ways to create clips are through:
This is the simplest and fastest way to create the clips you need for the edTPA. QuickTime for the Mac has some basic video editing capabilities and that's all you need for the edTPA. Be aware, QuickTime on Windows does NOT have the features described below. Remember to not use clips that include students who opted out of being on camera or didn’t fill out the permission form.
