Leaving honest feedback and rating gives members a good idea of what to expect when dealing with other members. Leaving Feedback is also a way to express your appreciation for a session well done.
We are requesting permission to record, edit and make available each virtual interaction because teachers like to review the session with students for better understanding of material, assign it to students for homework in a blended learning model or just share it with other classrooms that cannot attend a live session. As a professional your volunteering hours go further when a recording is made available for reuse in education.
