Parents love seeing moments from class, and now they can see them in motion!  Teachers can post a 30 second clip of students working in groups, giving a presentation, or learning on a field trip through Class Story or Student Story.  

Recording videos is easy on our iOS and Android apps!  This feature is not currently available on the ClassDojo website.
