Whoever said practice makes perfect had InterviewStream in mind. InterviewStream is web-based video interface that allows a student practice for an interview, rehearse an elevator pitch or improve their public speaking. Utilizing a webcam and a microphone, students respond to a series pre-recorded interview questions from their computer. Students are recorded and are then able to review their responses.
We use InterviewStream frequently to assist students with preparing for interviews, eliminating the dreaded ums and ahhs from speech, and helping non-native speakers feel more comfortable interviewing in English.
As a faculty member, you have the ability to create your own account. Once you’ve created an account, you can select pre-recorded questions, record your own custom questions and then review view student responses at your convenience and provide feedback.
