Sound files in quizzes.next

Jump to solution

When will the option to load audio files (.mp3) files be added into quizzes.next? This option is currently available in the old quiz text editor and it is a critical component especially for music courses. It is missing in the text editor in quizzes.next.

Hi jproppe@miracosta.edu.  I have to admit that I haven't tried this, but just check in my sandbox and see that there is an insert media button in the rich content editor of Q.Next (see below).

Insert media button in RCE

One of the options appears to be audio.

Have you tried this to see if it will fit your needs?

All the best!

Thanks very much for the reply ericwerth‌  This info is great news! When we were first introduced to Quizzes.next the ability to create audio quiz questions was not in the presentation. Thanks again!

Best wishes! 

You are very welcome jproppe@miracosta.edu!

It will not accept m4a audio files though. All MacBook and Apple audio files are m4a. This is a real issue for teachers who are trying to add audio of them reading the question aloud as an IEP or 504 modification.

Pages, assignments, and classic quizzes all accept the m4a files.
