In an Interactive Document, - Video or - Audio, both teachers and students are able to add practice questions and comments. As a teacher you can disable one or both options for your students, please see the set up guide of the tool to see how. 

Clicking the plus-button within a document, video or audio file, gives you the option to add a comment or a practice question. The plus-button shows when selecting part of the text or scrolling over the timeline. For Interactive Document, there is also a plus-button in the lower right corner of the display: this will add an overall practice question or comment, not specifically linked to a certain part in the file. 

Adding questions and comments works the same for all three tools. The examples shown in this article are from an Interactive Video.

Practice questions

When you click on Practice question, you will have to choose between an open question or a multiple choice question

Open question

For open questions, you enter the question and (optionally) the correct answer. Next to adding text, it is also possible to add a picture by clicking on the paperclip.

After a student has answered the question, they will see this model answer and can indicate whether their answer is correct, almost correct or wrong. If no correct answer was added, students will not have to indicate if their answer was correct or not and the question will be counted as neither correct nor incorrect.

The teacher is able to see students' answers to the question. By default, students will also see these answers after answering the question, but then anonymised. If you want, you can disable this by switching off the toggle next to Students see anonymized answers by their peers after answering

Students who create a practice question will not have this option. The teacher can decide in the settings if they want students to see their peers answers to questions created by students (see the set up guide).

If you enable the option Students are required to answer this question before continuing the video, the part of the video (document or audio) that comes after the question will be hidden for students until they answer the question. In case of an Interactive Document, students will not be able to read the rest of the document. In case of an Interactive Video or Audio, students will not be able to continue watching or listening until they have answered the question. Note that the question doesn't have to be answered correctly to continue reading/watching/listening. As a student you do not have this option, peers will always be able to skip the question. 

Click Publish to add the question to the video. Note that the question will not be saved if you do not publish it.

Multiple choice questions

To create a multiple choice question, write your question and fill in the answer options. Also for multiple choice questions, it is possible to add an image by clicking on the paperclip. Click add answer to add more options. Tick the box(es) next to answers to indicate which answer(s) are correct. If several answers are correct, you can tick multiple boxes. If you want students to be able to select multiple answers, make sure to also enable the option Allow participants to select multiple choices. If a student chooses at least one of the correct answers, their answer will be counted as correct.

If you enable the option Students are required to answer this question before continuing the video, the part of the video (document or audio) that comes after the question will be hidden for students until they answer the question as explained above.

Click Publish to save your question and add it to the video.

Comments

To add a comment, select the appropriate section of the video, document or audio, click on the plus-button and click on Comment. Write your comment in the right sidebar and click Publish to save your comment and add it to the video.
