As a coach in a Coaching Huddle, you have the option to record an observation with the Sibme iOS and Android apps while simultaneously scripting notes from your laptop via the Sibme web version. After you stop the recording from your Sibme iOS or Android app, the video will automatically upload to the coaching Huddle and the notes will automatically sync at the appropriate time-stamp on the video timeline.

Steps to accomplish the task:

To start your synced observation, login to the Sibme iOS or Android app on your phone or tablet.

NOTE: If you are recording from your iPhone or Android phone, we recommend that you disable your data plan by turning on airplane mode and connect to the wifi of the location you are completing your observation. You must be connected to wifi to record a synced observation. You can also use a hotspot connection to complete a synced observation.


 Next, you need to access the Huddle screen to find the Coaching Huddle of the coachee you are observing. Depending on how many Huddles you are participating in, you can search for the Huddle or scroll down the page to find it. Tap to access the Coaching Huddle.


 Once you enter the Huddle, tap “Add Video,” and you will see three options. Tap “Record Synced Observation” to access the record screen. Tap the “red record icon” to start recording the observation.

After you’ve started recording the observation, if you have not already done so, log into app.sibme.com. To save time, you can login on the web app from your laptop before you start the recording process from your iOS or Android device. Click the live recording link in your recent activity area on your dashboard to access the live scripting area in your Coaching Huddle. You also have the option to click the live recording link in the “observation tab” of the Coaching Huddle you are recording the observation in to access the scripting area.

You can begin typing and adding your comments, tags, and framework standards when you access this screen.

When you have ended your observation, tap the “red square icon” to stop the recording on your iOS or Android device. The video will save to “offline videos” and automatically upload to the Coaching Huddle you started the observation from.

Lastly, once the video has uploaded successfully, you have the option to make any edits to the comments you added or change the location of the time-stamp.

Once you are satisfied with your observation, you can publish it for your coachee to view. They now have the option to view the video and reply to your comments.
