Rich media content can increase student engagement in online and blended learning experiences. With the Video Quiz feature in VIUTube, you can further draw learners in and allow opportunities for self assessment and reflection. This tool allows you to insert multiple choice or true/false questions and reflection points throughout your video.

In this session we will demonstrate the video quiz features and discuss ways you can use media more broadly to enrich student learning.
