The Recording item can be used for:
- assessment of speaking, pronunciation, or presentation skills
- recordings of oral exams.
A Recording item can't be scored automatically, therefore the scoring mechanism of the Recording item is always set to Manual scoring. This implies that Recording items are always scored in the Grading module.
Note: To be able to make a video recording, the users need to have a webcam installed on their computer.

Requirements for end users
End users who start a recording item will be prompted to allow access to their microphone and optionally webcam. This prompt can be slightly different depending on the browser they are using, however, it is important for them to give this access. If they don't, they will not be able to start a recording and thus answer the item.
