Why is there a 1 minute limit on audio created with "Video Note"?


Can someone please explain the rationale for limiting an audio recording to 1 minute when using "Insert Stuff" - "Video Note" (then toggling to "Audio only"? Students have the ability to record for 30 minutes if they record video but only 1 minute if they record audio.

This video shows what it looks like.

The same is true when using the "Record Audio" or "Record Video" options in an assignment (see images below).

My question is why. It doesn't make sense that it's a space-saving measure. Video files will be larger than audio. Is there an actual reason because it feels kind of arbitrary?
