Kaltura Interactive Video Quizzing

Want to make sure your students are actively engaged while watching course videos? Looking for a way to test understanding, reinforce key concepts, and improve retention of the ideas explored in your online lectures?

Interactive Video Quizzing (IVQ), a feature of Kaltura Mediaspace, allows users to easily embed multiple choice questions into video recordings. In-video quizzes can support self-checks for understanding, link to the Canvas gradebook for formative assessments, and serve as a survey tool to poll viewers.

Harvard University psychologists have found that interpolated quizzing during lecture videos boosts student learning, increases task-relevant behaviors like note taking, and reduces mind wandering (Schacter & Szpunar, 2015).

School of Education faculty are using Kaltura IVQ in their courses, supported by MERIT instructional design partners. Professor of Educational Psychology, Dr. Haley Vlach uses Kaltura quizzing in her new online course to be offered in Summer 2017: Ed Psych 320 – Human Development in Infancy and Childhood. Dr. Vlach embeds questions throughout her videos, challenging students to synthesize information, recall what they have learned, and make inferences about what will happen next.
