Kaltura, Instructors, Video quizzing
Instructors with videos in Kaltura can add limited quizzing functionality to them through the online editor.
The video quizzing function in Kaltura is best viewed as adding functionality to a video, rather than a full-featured assessment.
Due to reliability issues, we recommend using Kaltura video quizzes only for ungraded student self-testing, preparation, and other low-stakes applications.
Instructors who use Kaltura in-video quizzing should have backup plans for issues such as some students not being able to complete quizzes, or some students' results being lost. The video quizzing function is best viewed as adding interactivity to a video, rather than a full-featured assessment.
We do not recommend using this function until reading this document entirely.
As an alternative (and the method we recommend), you can embed a video into the instructions or a question in a "Classic" quiz inside Canvas (Kaltura, Add a video to Canvas
) or inside Illinois Compass with the "Mashup" button (Kaltura, Add Video to a Test in Illinois Compass
). Many instructors would prefer this, because of the full-featured quizzing available inside their Compass course spaces, and greater reliability.
Thus you have the choice of adding video to a quiz in Compass or Canvas (or Moodle), or adding quiz questions to to a video. If you still want to try Kaltura video quizzes connected to the gradebook, understand that the grades may not be automatically passed to the Canvas gradebook; requiring manual transfer of grades from Kaltura MediaSpace to the Canvas gradebook.
Adding a quiz to Compass, Canvas, or Moodle:
To create a video quiz inside mediaspace
, you will need to first have the video in mediaspace. Then, edit the video by choosing "Launch Editor" from the Actions menu. See this help document on Kaltura's Website: https://knowledge.kaltura.com/help/kaltura-video-quiz
However, there is no integration between In-Video Quizzes and the Canvas gradebook.
Manual Transfer of results:
If you are using Compass:
The first thing you'll need to do is activate Kaltura video quizzing in your course space. To do this in your Compass space, go to the control panel in the lower-left hand of the page and click on Customization and then Tool Availability. Then check the box to activate "Kaltura Video Quiz."
To create or add a video quiz inside Compass
: You will now be able to choose "Kaltura Video Quiz" from the "Assessments" menu. This will show you your Kaltura account just as you can see in on mediaspace in a pop-up window. If you have already created video quizes, they will show up here. Otherwise you can use the Add New button in the upper-right. Then you would follow the procedure on this help document on Kaltura's Website: https://knowledge.kaltura.com/help/kaltura-video-quiz
Note that you must hit the "shuffle" button to randomize the answers!
After you add a video quiz to your Compass space, a column will be added to the grade center to receive the grade.
Again, a student can only take a Kaltura video quiz once. This would apply to any user, including you and your Preview account if you use "Student Preview" mode. Even if you clear the attempt for a student in the Grade Center, it will merely erase the grade. The student will not be able to take it again.
If you are using Canvas:
You can still send students to a video quiz in mediaspace.illinois.edu, or link to it as you would any video in Canvas (Kaltura, Add a video to Canvas
). However, there is no integration between In-Video Quizzes and the Canvas gradebook.
If you choose to use the IVQ function for graded work, you will need to add an assignment from the Assignments tab, and choose to add an External Tool. (If you try to add a video quiz to the home page with the "plus" icon, adding it as an external tool here will not work. This is a known issue.)
If you use Kaltura video quizzes in your course we recommend instructing your students to:
- Complete a video quiz within four hours of starting it,
- Complete it before the assignment's due date and available until date and time, and
- Verify they click the Submit button at the end of the video quiz.
Manual Transfer of results:
It is possible you will need to access test results by downloading a .csv file through https://mediaspace.illinois.edu, follow this procedure, from Kaltura's Website: https://knowledge.kaltura.com/help/kaltura-video-quiz
and go to "Show How to View Quiz Reports and Analytics."
