Upload a video

Back on the Activity page, click the Upload Video link and then choose whether to:

After you add the video, a preview will appear.

Add questions to the video timeline

Follow these steps to add questions to a video. You add a question to a specific point in the timeline known as a comprehension check.

Step 1 — Click the Enter Question field, enter the text of the question (such as “What is Playvox?”), and then click the Create Comprehension Check button.

Step 2 — Hover over the question to display the small edit button. Click this button to display the Edit panel.

Step 3 — In the edit panel, you can edit the question and then choose the Question Type and Feedback Type.

There are three options for the Question Type:

  • Unique choice — the learner can only choose one correct answer.

  • Multiple answers — the learner would need to choose at least two answers.

  • Short Answer — the learner would need to type out an answer (in one or more sentences).

There are several options for Feedback Type:

  • All Answers — provide all of the answers after the learner answer the question.

  • Correct/Incorrect answers — will show the message when everything is correct or you fail.

  • Per option — Add a custom message for each of the options that the learner can choose. The message that you provide for each option will appear when the user clicks on that option.

Step 4 — Add the answers to this question. Begin by entering text for Answer option 1, and then click the + Add Answer Option link to add another answer option—until you cover all the options that you want for this question.

For each answer option that is correct, click the small circle button to turn it green.

NOTE: This will work differently on each of the question types. Unique would only have one correct answer, Multiple answer would have at least two answers, and Short answer would ask the course manager to write the option.

Step 5 — For the Feedback, enter both the correct and incorrect answer.

Click the Save Changes button to commit your changes; click Cancel to discard your entries.

Step 6 — Back on the Quiz page, you can add more questions and drag-and-drop to change the order of the questions.
