How do I record my Submission with the mobile apps in ApprenNet?

This video walks you through the process of how to record your submission with the mobile app. Below are step by step instructions to walk you through the process as well.

There are four ways to submit a video response to the challenge:

  1. Desktop App
  2. Web Recorder
  3. File Uploader
  4. Mobile Recorder

Below outlines step-by-step instructions on how to download, record, and upload a video submission using the Mobile Recorder. The Mobile Recorder option provides links to download the ApprenNet mobile app on Android or iOS (Apple devices).

Note, the Mobile Recorder does not allow you to upload a document or participate in Peer Review or other stages. The Mobile Recorder is for submitting a Challenge response video only.
