Troubleshooting Tips: 

  • If the video is not uploading properly, it is likely due to a connection issue. Please try on multiple different connections (ie. data vs wifi, school vs. home)
  • If the app is telling you that you need to enable your camera or microphone you can click "Enable camera" or "Enable microphone" in the app when it pops up or later by going into your device settings, scrolling down to view your apps and selecting "ClassDojo". In the window that pops up toggle the bar to green beside both Microphone and Camera. IMG_1355.PNG
