I used chromebooks for a flipped classroom approach to swimming. The analyzed each stroke the night before instruction. In addition, I used an iPad to video their stroke, and they then compared their stroke to the model stroke they researched the night before. Still working on this as a lot of time was taken setting up their CB's on the side and making sure they stay dry. In addition, I need a way to quickly send them the clips to make this process more efficient. Suggestions welcome.

Great ideas! Thanks so much:).
If you share the video file specifically with the individual student, then only they would have access. That, of course, would take extra time, but if you had, let's say, 2 ipads, you could have student helper upload and share with the specific student, while you video the next student on the other ipad. And just keep rotating that way. In that case, you wouldn't need to share the folder at all, as only you would need to access it.
Regarding using Replay-It. I think that if you figured out where to position the Chromebook that would allow the camera to capture the pool, you could just keep putting it in that location with the lid at the same angle. It might take some testing, but should work. Obviously not having a rear facing camera makes it a little less user friendly, but I think it's pretty feasible and would save any need for sharing the video.
Thanks! Both are great ideas. Is there a way that students wouldn't be able to see other student's videos if I choose the Google drive option? I also really like the "Replay-It" app idea? How easy is it to video on the chromebooks. Thinking that feature isn't very user friendly but not quite sure.
Again, thank you:)
A couple of thoughts:
re: sending the clips to your students.
A very quick way would be to set up a Drive folder (this is assuming you are a G-Suite district) and give your student viewing rights to that folder. Then, after you video a few swimmers, go to the Drive app, open that folder and upload the files to that folder. The students will be able to access the folder and then their video (there will be a bit of processing time before they will be able to view the video, but if it's a short video it won't take long). If you can name the files in a way the students will know which is theirs before saving that would be ideal. (I'm not sure what you're using to record.)
Another option would be to use the "Replay-It" app on the student Chromebooks. You could have each student bring their chromebook to you, film it using the app and they, then, could view it on their own chromebook from the app.
