Interactive videos are a great way to capture learners’ attention, render information visually, and give them a break from text-heavy content. Using video-based quizzes and scenarios, you can transform the typical e-learning quiz or scenario into something more engaging for learners. And using video to create more engaging e-learning is what this week’s challenge is all about!
To help get you started, check out the following examples from our 2019 video quiz challenge.
Quiz with Video Backgrounds
A common approach to video quizzes is to overlay the question choices above the video. Here’s a good example of using a full-slide video to focus on a specific step or process in a quiz.
Quiz with Supporting Video
Video quizzes don’t need to be full-screen, immersive productions. Instead, keep things simple by using video to support the quiz. This example from Jodi shows how subtle videos can replace static images to create more engaging quizzes.
Video Interview with Branching Quiz Questions
This is one of my favorite examples from the video interview challenge. I really like how this project alternates between presentation and quizzing modes.
