Video Quiz

In VIUTube, you can create interactive video quizzes which will allow your learners to test their understanding of concepts while they are watching a video. 

There are four different types of questions that you can add to a video quiz in VIUTube. 

  • Multiple Choice: Users will be given a question and will be prompted to choose the correct answer from a list of available choices. 

  • True/False: Insert a question or prompt for your students to answer. Students will be asked to choose whether that question or prompt is true or false. 

  • Open- Ended QuestionInsert a open ended question for your user. Your user will then be given 270 characters to answer this question.

  • Reflection Point:  A Reflection Point allows you to insert a pause into the video in order to have students reflect on what was said. You can add text to help guide student's reflection. With Reflection Point's, students are not prompted to insert or select an answer and can continue watching the video anytime they wish by clicking the Continue button.
