Comments

Is it possible to provide feedback on the questions as the students take the quiz rather than after it's submitted?

Hi @bayazitoglu,

Thanks for your question. Currently, feedback on Studio video quizzes is only available after the student has submitted the quiz. If you're interested, I recommend checking out the Ideas forum to see if anyone else has submitted this idea. Please feel free to submit an idea if one doesn't already exist and let our product team know how this functionality would be beneficial in your courses.

Thanks!

Emily

For some reason, when I click on the 3 dots to create a quiz on my video, I do not see the option to create a quiz. Is this a glitch, or am I doing something wrong? I only see the options to share the video, move, or delete media. Please see attached screenshot. Screen Shot 2020-08-20 at 8.52.54 AM.png

 

I am having a similar issue as Joseph Vincent. There is no option to create a quiz. I don't know if it matters, but the video I am using is an MP4 file stored on my computer.

Joseph Vincent and kelli_amaral, 

Could it be that you are viewing Studio inside a particular course? I believe to get the quiz option, you need to click the Studio button in the far left menu of Canvas where you'd find Commons, Inbox, and Help. 

Hi Amy,

Thanks for your response. I am accessing studio from where you have said (on the same menu as commons, etc.), as show in the image below. I'm wondering if it is because I need to be in "My uploads" which I am unable to find? I only seem to be able to find "My library" in studio. When I access the video from the button that you mentioned, the quiz option still does not appear.

Is it possible to have more than 1 question at a quiz point in the video?  I would like to ask three successive questions.

Hi @jvincent91 & @kelli_amaral , thank you for your questions! I'm sorry you've encountered this issue. If the quiz creation option isn't displaying for you, this feature may not be enabled in your accounts. Your schools' admins should have more information on that for you.

Please let us know if we can help with anything else! 

Thanks,

Tami

Hi @bestks,

That is a great question. As far as I know, unfortunately multiple quiz questions cannot be added at a single point in a video. Your best option is likely to add separate questions as closely timed as possible in the timeline. If you're interested, I recommed creating an Idea conversation for this functionality.

Thanks!

Emily

Hello! I finally got the quiz function to work! Now I am curious if it is possible to share a video quiz with another teacher (I co-teach a class with another teacher). It seems like it may only be possible to share the video itself, but not the embedded questions? Thanks again for your help!

 

Best,

Joseph

Hi @jvincent91, thanks for your question. Unfortunately. quizzes added to a video are not included when the video is shared. 

Thanks,

Emily

Is there a way to keep youtube's captions on the video I am creating the quiz in? I am not able to turn them on/off when after I added the video to Canvas Studio.

Hi @ASawamura, thanks for your question. Unfortunately, YouTube's API restricts captions from coming with the video when it is added to Studio. 

Thanks,

Emily

@ASawamuraHowever, you can request that Studio create automatically generated captions for you which you can edit for accuracy.  I found the editing to be simple to use.

@kelli_amaral  Where can I find that?

@ASawamuraFrom within Studio you click on the video you want, then click on Captions.

InkedScreenshot 2020-09-04 09.48.38_LI.jpgThen you choose your language from the dropdown menu on the left under Captions Request. And click request. You will get an email notification when the captions are ready. I haven't really paid attention, but I think it has always been less than 24 hours for them to be done. Once they are done, when you go back to the video in Studio and click on Captions it will say Manage Captions and you can click on Review and Publish. Then it will show the captions like this:

Screenshot 2020-09-04 09.55.30.pngIf the video is long there will be lots of scrolling, but you can listen to the video and edit the captions as you go. Usually the captions do need to be edited. But I also tend to talk quickly, so if you speak more slowly it may be better.

Fantastic! I was looking there before but didn't know what I was doing, haha. Thank you @kelli_amaral 

Hello @tbooth, I am a school admin (brand new) and I believe we have turned on ability for teachers to create video quizzes. But I still cannot find My Uploads, and I cannot see any quiz option on uploaded media.

Jim

Hi @jbwhite10 ! Thank you for reaching out. Were you able to find your My Uploads page and create video quizzes? If not, I'd recommend logging in directly to the Studio site as an admin to view your My Uploads page. You can find the Studio site by following the directions in this guide.

From there, you should be able to access the My Uploads page and use video quizzing if it has been enabled in your account.

Thanks!
Tami
