Swivl's Recap

From the makers of the Swivl, Recap is a video response app that makes the process of collecting student feedback a breeze! View the introductory video to see it in action.

Students can easily allow their webcam and microphone on their device and share video feedback to a teacher's unit or lesson.

Students simply connect to the teacher's class with a CLASS PIN:

From there, they click on their PROFILE ICON:

When/if their teacher has assigned a RECAP, a RESPOND NOW button appears:

The question and, if applicable, the video prompt will appear on the following screen.  The student clicks RESPOND to begin the recording process:

KISD Security Notice

Keller Readers,

Data security is a process that evolves over time.  New threats emerge and new countermeasures are developed.  With that being said, the Keller ISD technology department would like to get ahead of the game.  In the near future, all staff will be required to change their network passwords.  This will be a multi-step process (instructions here). 

The first step in this process will require you to answer two security questions.  These questions must be answered by Friday, April 14th , 2017.  Please refer to the step-by-step instructions.  In addition, KISD employees will receive emails in the future advising how to update your password. 

We are serious about the security of our staff and student data and these measures will assist in keeping this information private. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this process.  Feel free to submit a TechHelp ticket with any questions or concerns.
