Hi Heather
I would like to know that whether my student can upload her video as one work of the eleven works for HL in Exhibition uploads. Where can she upload it if it is yes ? with the eleven article docs or a seperate supporting docs ? Kindly clarify.

Hi Nanda, if the video is one of her submitted artworks then it should be one of the 8-11 pieces uploaded just like the image files but a movie file ( see for file types and sizes) . Does this help?

Hi Heather where do the students Exhibition photos, text, and statement get uploaded to? I see where I have to enter my marks, but I do not see anyplace on the IB teacher site, or the IB student site to upload the exhibition. Thank you!

Kathleen, select and accept your samples and then you will see the upload screens ;)

Heather, do you have any recommendations for how to photograph a book with multiple pages? I have a student who wrote and illustrated a comic book for one of her exhibition works. Thank you!

You could try making a short video turning the pages, and include 2 still shots as the supporting photos....

Hi Heather, I can't see anywhere if photos need to be jpeg? Some of my students have saved images in png - is this format ok? Thanks for your help
