BookWidgets Adds a New Video Quiz Option to Use in Google Classroom and Beyond

At the end of last year I highlighted the collection of more than thirty activity templates from BookWidgets that can be used in Google Classroom. This week BookWidgets added a useful new widget simply called Video Quiz

As the name implies, the video quiz widget in BookWidgets lets you create a video-based quiz to use directly in BookWidgets and or distribute through your favorite LMS including Google Classroom. With the video quiz widget in BookWidgets you can use your own videos or videos that you've found on YouTube to create video-based lessons and quizzes. 

When you use the video quiz widget in BookWidgets you can add questions and comments directly into the timeline of a video. For example, if you want to make a clarifying comment 32 seconds into a video, you can do that. And if you want to pose a reflection question to your students three minutes into a video, you can do that. In fact, you can use any of the dozens of BookWidgets question types in the video quiz widget. In other words, you're not limited to asking multiple choice and short answer questions as you are with some other video lesson creation tools.

Later this week I will publish my own BookWidget video quiz tutorial on my YouTube channel. Until then, take a look at this tutorial from Lucie at BookWidgets to learn more about how it works.

How to Create Video Quizzes on Vizia

Last week I shared some information about a new video quiz creation tool called Vizia. Since then I've received some questions about how it actually works. To address those questions I created the short video that is embedded below.


As mentioned in the video, all of the responses to your questions are collected in a spreadsheet that you can download and or open in Google Sheets. Once the responses are in Google Sheets you could use the Flubaroo Add-on to grade the responses to your quiz.

Applications for Education
Vizia could be a good tool to use to create short flipped video lessons in which you ask questions to check for understanding. One way that I might use it is to put a campaign commercial into the Vizia editor then create questions that ask students to identify the persuasion techniques that are used in the commercial.

How to Create Video-based Quizzes on Blubbr

Blubbr is a neat quiz creation service that enables you to create interactive quizzes that are based on YouTube clips. Your quizzes can be about anything of your choosing. The structure of the quizzes has a viewer watch a short clip then answer a multiple choice question about the clip. Viewers know right away if they chose the correct answer or not. In the video embedded below I demonstrate how to use Blubbr to create a video-based quiz.
