I’ve been creating my pre-recorded video lectures using Screencastify since the beginning of the school year without any issues. However, right before the holiday break my students started experiencing issues where the screen would go completely black in the middle of a video. Has anyone experienced this before? I’m wondering if it might have to do with the program becoming overburdened by the volume of videos being created on the platform.

Question: I currently have a bit over $3000 worth of VTI ETF shares. Now that I’ve crossed over the $3k mutual fund minimum threshold, will this ETF begin to act as a mutual fund, where I’ll have the ability to DCA at any dollar amount instead of the full cost of the share? Does it automatically convert to VTSAX shares?
