Kaltura offers the ability to insert quiz questions into videos. When the viewer reaches the question, the video will automatically pause and prompt the user for a response. The answers are saved in the video's analytics.
Everyone can add quiz questions to their Kaltura media, so this tutorial applies to all Kaltura users (instructors, students, and staff with active directory credentials).
Quiz questions can be added to Kaltura media in both Canvas and MediaSpace.
If you're an instructor using Canvas and want to have your students' scores from the quiz report to the gradebook, read our tutorial on creating an integrated Kaltura in-video quiz.
See our video tutorial on adding in-video quiz questions or follow the instructions below.
There are three main things you have to do to create an in-video quiz:
Quizzes can be created in both Canvas and MediaSpace. To get to the quiz editor, start with the column below that applies to where you're creating your quiz.
|In Canvas||In MediaSpace|
Before adding any questions, you should configure your overall settings for your quiz. You can edit each setting discussed below by clicking the caret to expand its contents. There are three areas to configure: details, scores, and experience.
Quiz Name will be the name of the video entry in "My Media," and what users will see as its title if you publish it to a Media Gallery. (When you create a quiz, a new copy of the video is created automatically, so you'll definitely want to distinguish the title of the video from its quiz counterpart.)
Show Welcome Message lets you choose whether you want the students to see a screen when they start playing the video that includes your welcome message.
Welcome Message is the message that students will see once they elect to play the video. The default message is "In this video, you will be given a Quiz. Good Luck!"
Allow download of questions list will allow your students to download a preview of all the questions before they take the quiz. The opportunity to download the quiz is presented with an icon in the upper right corner of the welcome message once the viewer first clicks "play" on the video. The file is a PDF that lists the questions and possible answers.
Instructions, if checked, will display a screen at the beginning of the quiz that tells viewers "All questions must be answered. The quiz will be submitted at the end." This message isn't customizable.
Allow multiple attempts lets your students try the quiz more than once.
Number of attempts will only appear if you check "allow multiple attempts." In this field you can enter a number from 2-100.
Show scores / do not show scores is about whether your students will see their score at the end of the video. If you elect to not show their scores, as the text below the option indicates, your students will just see a "thank you" message when they complete the quiz.
Include answers will only be visible if "show scores" is selected. If checked, your students will be able to see the correct answers when they're done.
Allow answers change, if checked, allows users to review their answers and change them before they submit the quiz.
Allow skip / do not allow skip determines whether students have the ability to skip questions and continue watching the video without answering them.
No seeking forward is only selectable if you've selected "do not allow skip." If enabled, it won't allow students to advance the video beyond where they've watched it so far.
After you've identified the overall settings for your video quiz, it's time to add the actual questions into the quiz.
After you insert the question, you should see a small blue cube icon appear in the timeline at the bottom of the window. If you want to go back and edit one of the questions you set up, just click that question's icon.
When you're done adding all the questions you want, be sure to click Done at the top right of the Editor.
