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.
