Question Type: Video & Questions

Article author

Introducing a whole new question type: Video & Questions! 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 Fill in the Blank, Open Ended, or Multiple Choice questions to your video. Participants will then be able to refer to the video while they answer these questions.

Participant experience
