Using In-Video Quizzes within Open LMS

Using quizzes within a video is a great way to test your student’s knowledge and understanding of the content presented in a video. With Mediasite it’s easy to pull the in-video quiz results back to Open LMS. All that’s needed is a video that has a quiz and the ability to post content within your course.


Post the video in Open LMS

In order have the quiz results from a video post back to the LMS there are a couple of things that need to take place. First of all, the quiz needs to be published to the video before it gets posted to your course. Secondly, the video needs to be posted to Open LMS using a Deep Linking tool, contact your LMS administrator to find out if this is enabled. Once you have confirmed both have been taken care of you can post the video to your course.

Once a quiz has been published to a video, you’ll need to post it within the LMS.

  1. Locate the section within a course and select Create Learning Activity.
  2. Select Mediasite Quiz from the list of activities.
  3. Enter a Title for the activity.
  4. Click Select content then Presentation.
  5. Locate the presentation from the list and click Add to (course name) then choose from one of the options.
  6. In the Grade section of the activity, set the Point total.
  7. Click Save and return to course.

In order to pull the grades from an in-video quiz back to the LMS, the quiz must be published to the video before the video is posted in the LMS.

Publish Results to Gradebook

Posting the in-video quiz is only half the process. Once the activity with in-video quiz has been completed by students, the next step is to get the results posted to the gradebook. This is all done from the quiz results page within My Mediasite.

Starting from the Open LMS course page:

  1. Open My Mediasite from the left-hand navigation menu.
  2. Select the video that was posted within the assignment.
  3. Click View Analytics then select the Quiz
  4. Select individualor all results to post to the gradebook.
  5. Click Post Score to Gradebook.
  6. Within the LMS, confirm scores were posted.

With Mediasite 7.6, when a student takes a video quiz within the LMS, the quiz results will be automatically posted back to the LMS Gradebook.
