Media@UCSF: Interactive Video Quizzes

Media@UCSF is an online video hosting platform powered by Kaltura. The platform is integrated with the campus learning management system, the CLE, and provides the academic community with a centralized system for managing and distributing digital video content.

Utilize its features within the CLE by adding questions to any video file to create an interactive quiz. Use this feature to boost the power of educational videos by allowing viewers to participate directly in the video. Video quizzes may be graded, or simply used to engage students and encourage active participation.
