Select one answer: Video with Question

Adding a Video with Question to your course is a useful way of testing a learner's understanding of the content of the video immediately after they have watched it.

Once the learner has watched the video, they will be presented with a question within the video container.

Note: The Video with Question is designed to be used with directly uploaded videos only. We don't support the use of embedded videos with this question type.
