5. Scroll down to the 'Availability' section, add the dates and times for your assignment. As the assignment is formative only, the date and time settings can be at your own discretion. 

6. Scroll to the 'Submission types' section.  Deselect the File submissions option and select Video/Audio submission. The file size limit is automatically set to 1GB with this setting. All other 'Submission types' and settings in this section will become unavailable: 

7. Anonymous marking is enabled by default but can be disabled if that is a specific requirement of the assignment. The setting can be found under the 'Grade' section. Under 'Anonymous marking', select No.

8. Click Save and display. All other options can be left as default.
