How to Add Quizzes to a VidGrid Video

Full Video Transcript

[Instructor] VidGrid makes it ridiculously simple to quickly add in video quizzes and surveys to any of my videos here on the Grid.

First, I’ll navigate to the video where I want to add a quiz or a question, then I’m gonna play that video and pause it at the exact spot that I want this question to show up. When I click on the Surveys and Quizzes option in the top right of the player, it’s gonna enable me to add a question to this video. You’ll notice, it automatically recognizes my timestamp from where I’m at in the video.

Here I can choose Multiple Choice, Multiple Select, Text Input, which is another way of saying short answer, or Call To Action if I want my students to do something as a result of watching this video. Let’s go with Multiple Choice. How many hot air balloons do you see? I can now add as many answer labels as I would like to. Or I could do true/false, things like that. I can have user feedback as they’re going through. And then I’m simply gonna select a correct choice.

We see three balloons here so three is the correct option. We’ll go ahead and hit Save Question. We can now add as many of these questions as we’d like to throughout our video. Let’s see what it looks like now for students to go ahead and watch this video and respond to the quiz. When students play the video back, when the quiz question comes up, they’ll be prompted to answer the question.

They cannot move forward or back without answering this question. When they select the correct choice, they’ll hit Submit and the video will continue playing. That’s how you add interactive questions on the Grid.

First, navigate to the video where you want to add a quiz or question. Then play that video and pause it exactly where you want the quiz to show up. Click on the in-video questions option at the top part of the player. This will enable you to add a question to this video. It automatically recognizes the timestamp where you have the video. You can then select multiple choice, multiple select, text input, or call to action for the question format.

You can add as many questions as you’d like throughout the video, using a variety of question types however you see fit. When users play the video back and the quiz question comes up, they will be prompted to answer the question. You can also choose to make the question required so that viewers cannot move forward or back without answering.

Adaptive Quizzing

Adaptive quizzing means being able to set up the video to advance differently based on the answers received. This can help drive learning within employee training or higher education programs.

On VidGrid, you can choose to receive user feedback as well as jump to other locations in the video depending on how each question is answered. This allows you to give different feedback based on the answer given and jump to different sections of the video given specific user feedback. For example, if a question is answered incorrectly, the user could be sent back to the section of the video in which the correct answer is presented.

Adaptive quizzing can increase engagement and help with knowledge retention. It allows the same video to be seen differently by each user, giving them all a unique experience to meet their learning needs.

Here are four ways adaptive quizzes can drive learning:

1. Increased Motivation

Knowing questions are included throughout the video and correct answers are needed in order to move forward, will increase active attention and engagement. Getting answers right throughout the video provides positive feedback and keeps users motivated to keep going.

2. Assess Current Comprehension

Adaptive learning can assess users’ current understanding and comprehension of a topic, allowing them to skip sections they already know. Viewers can provide their confidence level in specific areas and quickly answer questions to prove their knowledge. This helps users be more efficient, and can also uncover blind spots they might not have been aware of in their own understanding—and by shining a light on those areas in this way they have better opportunity to comprehend and retain the correct information in the future.

3. Individualized Paths

With adaptive quizzing, individual learning paths are created for each user, providing them with exactly the right information at the right time.This can help provide a more effective learning path with personalized content and goals matched to individual user needs. This could result in the ability to identify high achievers within an organization.

4. Built-In Efficiency

Adaptive learning allows for viewers to focus on areas that need to be learned and skip things they already know. By understanding this built-in efficiency within video trainings, users know their time won’t be wasted and may be more motivated to actively engage in video learning.
