Below Details, Scores and Experience you can change a number of settings:

  1. Details:
    • The name of the quiz.
    • The welcome message that students see when they start the video. 
    • Whether or not students can download the quiz questions before starting the quiz.
    • Whether or not students get an instruction before the quiz starts.

  6. With the triangular button you can start and pause the video. With the arrows you can jump back/forth to the last/next questions. 
  7. Go to a specific moment in the video to add a question. Pause the video on the desired moment and select the desired question type:
    • Multiple choice: A question with multiple answers the student can choose from.
    • Reflection Point: The video pauses and a text will appear on screen.
    • True/False: A question with two options.
    • Open-Ended Question.

This is an example of a Multiple Choice question.

  1. Type your question.
  2. Fill in the correct answer in the box next to the green checkmark, and then add an incorrect answer in the box below. 
  3. Click on the little plus icon if you would like to add more incorrect answers.

When you hover over one of the possible answers, you will see six dots appear on the left side. Click and hold to drag the question to a different position. 
  5. It is also possible to add a Hint or a Why:

    • Students can see at the end of each question Why the correct answer is in fact correct.
