"We have now used the new Quiz feature twice - the first time, for our Fresher’s Fair, was a Roald Dahl Quiz for new students, taking part in it won them a prize, this went down well. The second use of it has been for a US Election Poll - "Who Would You Vote For" - this is being officially launched across the entire college (six sites) in the week after our half term. Interest has also been expressed in using it for a real vote for our Student President." Simon Mapp – LRC Assistant – Coleg Cambria
Create your own questions and choose from a number of responses; multiple choice, true or false, fill in the blank and free text answer questions, plus you can even leave hints to assist your students.
Highlight specific areas on video content by using simple drawing tools. Draw freehand or use predefined shapes, all of which can be resized and finished in a colour of your choice.
Create text annotations to help guide students and viewers.
Insert links to other content within your Planet eStream media library; this can include other relevant video content, pictures, documents and website links. Educators can even drag and drop resources onto the video and they will automatically be uploaded to Planet eStream.
When creating quizzes, educators can tailor the quiz to get the information they require by controlling the responses and tools available to the viewer. In strict test or examination conditions educators can set their quiz to ensure that the students do not receive answer feedback as they progress through the quiz and also choose to not allow skipping of questions. When using the tool as a learning aid, educators can set their quiz to allow students to have repeated attempts at answering questions and get immediate feedback to assist their learning.
All user responses to questions are recorded by Planet eStream. Using the Synopsis tool, educators can view a simple overview of students’ scores and answers to their quiz questions. The simple Synopsis tool is also available when users access their quizzes through supported VLEs.
Further information is available in the analytics section of Planet eStream. Here more detailed information is displayed in an intuitive manner, including timeline heat maps, to provide the educator with an overview of responses and assess how their students performed. The results can be filtered down to a user level, enabling the educator to monitor how a particular student answered questions and interacted with the video. This information, alongside detailed video tracking analytics, enable an educator to see which parts of the video the student watched in relation to questions and assets provided and how often. For example, if a student answered a question incorrectly the first time, the educator can check to see if the same student went back and re-watched the relevant areas of the video attached to that question, to monitor learning outcomes and gaps in knowledge.
All quizzes and interactive videos can be embedded and linked with any VLE and web based platform. Users will be asked to login and their interactions tracked for analytics.
