How to Direct Students to Videos Based on Answer Choices in Google Forms

This morning I answered an email from a reader who wanted to know if there was an easy way to direct students to videos based on how they answered her quiz questions. My answer was to make the quiz in Google Forms and use the built-in answer feedback option to include videos. I made the following short video to show how that works.



On a related note, you can do a similar thing in Google Forms without making a quiz. The process is a bit longer, but it does provide more options. That process is detailed in this video that I published back in April.

Journey Into the Deep Sea - Neat Nat Geo VR Experience

Earlier this year I featured National Geographic's fantastic playlist of 360 degree immersive videos that can be experienced with or without a virtual reality viewer. Recently, National Geographic added another excellent video to that collection. That video is Journey Into the Deep Sea.

Journey Into the Deep Sea is a nine minute underwater tour of the coral reefs around Palau. In addition to the fantastic imagery of fish, sharks, and manta rays the video includes little "pop-up" facts windows throughout the video. You can view the video in a VR viewer like Google Cardboard or simply watch it in your web browser. If you watch in the web browser on your computer you can click on the video to pan and zoom through it. When you watch the video in a VR viewer your movements will reveal different aspects of the video.
