In this video, I demonstrate the entire process from Creating a Canvas Video quiz, to viewing the quiz in student view, to how it all connects to the grade book. 

In this video, you will actively participate as you learn how to create a quiz out of any Canvas Studio video (your older Zoom videos included) and deliver the quiz in an assignment to your students. This process is one of the best ways to make sure your students are actively watching your videos and participating in your class.

Please download and open the attached Zip file to participate with the video.

Another great one James.  That is such a great tool that I really need to use more often.

Thank you for sharing this video. I learned a lot! 

 

Can students still leave additional comments on the video if it is a quiz? Or does this feature restrict them to just the quiz answers?

Sarah,

That feature is disabled unfortunately.  With comments, other students can view them so it's probably disabled to prevent sharing answers or clues.

@aaron-garner Thank you for letting me know. I use Canvas Studio a lot to spur class discussions, but I can still see how certain videos would work better with the quiz function. Thanks!

Happy New Year!

After I created a video quiz I realized that the students can't go back and view the video again or make comments like Sarah mentioned. What I did to get around this problem was embed the same video in the assignment description using "standard embed". This makes the assignment quite long (with two videos of the same thing with and without the quiz) but I don't know what else to do. My students often want to watch the videos more than once.

BTW is there a way to "size" the embedded studio video? Is there a way to make it smaller in the assignment like when you embed other non-studio videos?

So, the good news is that I have answered my question about how to use an embed code to embed a studio video so that it appears smaller in the assignment. The bad news is that you lose the ability for analytics and comments when you embed this way. You also lose the ability for analytics and comments when you link a studio video instead of embedding the usual way. 

James gave me the idea to link the "non-quiz" video in the assignment introduction to reduce space. This is a good idea as long as you don't want to use analytics and comments. 

How to use an embed code or link a studio video. If you want to make the embedded image smaller, just adjust the dimensions in the embed code.

Here is the improved version.

Instead you can make a "classic" quiz and put the video in the instructions. They can watch the video at their leisure and then take the quiz. They can go back to the video during and after the quiz. Depending on how you embed you can have analytics and comments.

matter quiz

I would not suggest embedding a video for them to watch and take a quiz on in "new quizzes" unless you give them unlimited time.
