20 Reasons to DII with Quiz instead of Interactive Video.

What are the main benefits of creating an Interactive Video embedded with questions?

Teachers can disable skipping to prevent from skipping forward.

Is it impactful? Initially, we thought it was. However, data of students’ learning outcomes on both formal and informal assessments show it has little impact on high-risk students. We observed high-risk students only pretend the watch the video and wait for others to get the answers because they know the rigorous levels of the question is very limited.

Give students grades for answering questions throughout the video. 

Is it impactful? It’s very limited. With any current websites, teachers can only create basic multiple-choice or multiple-responses questions. Some premium websites allow you to create a fill-in-blank question. Therefore, high-students can cheat easily without having to watch the video and understand the content.

What are the main challenges of creating and using an Interactive Video embedded with questions?

Teachers cannot any mistakes and apply the changes.

Is it critical? Very. Teachers want/need to have consistency with all of their classes, especially for middle and high school classes. For example, we create duplicate the activity to fix the mistakes to apply the changes to later classes. Consequently, it’s also mess up our grade book because we know have two separate activity.

Teachers cannot collaborate with others and customize shared materials to meet their students’ needs. 

Is it critical? Very. Teachers have to create all questions on the video directly, so only one teacher can work it at the same time. Overall, it’s almost impossible for teachers to collaborate on creating an activity.

It takes a lot more time to load, and it also has performance issues. 

Is it critical? Very. When we add another layer on top of the video, it affects the video’s performance. Most of our students do not have fast internet access at home or even at schools. The slow internet causes connection problems and performance issues.

Interactive Video Activity by Integrating your Video with Quiz

What are the main challenges/cons of creating and using quiz to create interactive video activity?

Teachers cannot prevent students from forward?

Is it critical? No. We have other requirements and data that allow us to enforce students to watch the entire video and learn the content presents in the video. They are some of the main reasons why we want to create interactive video activity with a quiz activity.

What are the main benefits of creating an Interactive Video embedded with questions?

  1. How do we enforce all students, including high-risk students, to watch the entire video and learn the content?
    1. We require students to take handwritten notes and annotated them. We require students to copy everything shown on the video.
    2. We set specific dates and times when to open and close the activity, so students are required to complete the activity in the given time frame. We can also set a time limit to force students to complete on time, or they have to answers all questions all over again. Of course, we have MTSS intervention for any students who need it.
    3. The quiz’s results show students’ responses and times on each question.
    4. Multiple-page navigation prevents students from relying on the video to copy answers from the video. So, students have to copy the notes first. Of course, they can open it on a new tab or window.
    5. Teachers have more control of Quiz behaviors, so they can choose the behavior that best for the activity to promote more students’ accountability. (adaptive, immediate, deferred)
  2. Teachers can fix errors in real-time and re-grade answers easily
  3. Teachers can collaborate and share video and questions with other easily.
  4. If our YouTube video is blocked for whatever reason, we can quickly and easily replace it with a video from our school Google Drive.
  5. Write +13 question types to create engaging and meaningful questions that promote critical thinking and deeper understanding
  6. Create media-rich questions such as drag and drop onto an image
  7. Create complex questions such as calculated questions
  8. Teachers penalize students for incorrect answers.
  9. Teachers can grade students’ overall grades based on the highest grade or average of all attempts.
  10. Teachers can re-use the questions in later practices, games, or assessments (Save  a lot of time)
  11. Focus on students’ understanding the content rather than completing the task
  12. Include more questions to assess students understanding
  13. Include a section of shuffled questions for independent practices.
  14. Load faster and easier on any students’ device because there is no code overlaying the video.
  15. Compatible with most video’s source (Google Drive, YouTube, & others)
