Question Type: Interactive Video

Article author

Introducing a whole new question type: Interactive Video! With this question type, you can upload a video containing your case studies or learning material and add multiple questions based on the video. 

You can upload a video from your device, Google Drive, or One Drive, or paste the URL to a YouTube video. Add multiple Multiple-Choice, Fill-in-the-Blank, Hotspot, Drop-Down, Drag-and-Drop, Categorize, and Open-ended questions to your video. Participants will then be able to refer to the video while they answer these questions.

In this article, we will go over how you can create an Interactive Video, the participant experience of this question type, and how you can view the responses to this question type in your reports.
