How to use Video with Question Tool

One of the coolest tools in Ogment is Video with Questions. You can take any video that you’ve brought into Ogment, drag it into a lesson, and then add questions at any point in the video. The video will play until it gets to a question. Then it will pause and the question will slide in. Once the question has been answered, the video will continue until it gets to the next question, and so on. If you are looking for a way to capture your students’ attention—this is it!

  1. Click on the “Tools” tab on the left side of the lesson editor.

  2. Drag and drop Video with Questions into the lesson.
  3. Click the “pencil” icon. The Video with Questions editor will open.
  4. Add directions if you’d like.
  5. Drag and drop a video from your resources into the blue box.

  6. Drag the orange circle on the bar below the video to choose the point in the video where you’d like a question to pop up. For example, if you’d like the first question to appear at 0:33, move the orange circle to 0:33.

  7. Now switch back to the “Tools” tab and choose a question type to add to the video.
  8. Drag the question type and drop it on top of the video.
  9. Author the question as you would normally do. For more information on how to author questions and the different question types that are available, see “How to work with Question Types”.

  10. To preview the question, hit the “preview” button within the question type.

  11. To preview all of the questions as they appear within the video, preview the lesson.

You can insert questions into audio files and passages, too! Check out “How to use Audio with Questions” and “How to use Passage with Questions”.
