How to Create a Video Quiz Using Kaltura

If you would like the video quiz to display directly on your course homepage, add the video in through a Label.

If you would not like the video to display directly on your course homepage, but instead have students click off of the main course homepage to view it, add the Video Quiz through a Page.

These instructions are for faculty only.

1.) Enter your Moodle course and click 'Add an activity or resource' in the topic where you would like the video to display
