Creating Interactive Videos
- Prepare your Content. Prepare your materials by considering what questions would work face-to-face, then
determine if they can be translated to questions for import into your video (e.g., multiple-choice, multiple select, true/false, fill-in-the-blank) using Panapto's in-video questioning capability.
- Prepare Yourself. Consider a few essential details before recording, including
how to log in and use Panopto/Chipcast.
- Record your Panopto/Chipcast videos keeping these essential details in mind,
including the need to stay brief, be conversational, maintain an enthusiastic tone, and personalize whenever possible.
- Edit your recording and insert questions and other content.
- Import and edit closed-captioning using automatic speech recognition.
- Place links in the desired location (e.g., Blackboard shell).
Review Data from Your Videos
Reviewing the data or analytics of your videos provides information concerning your students' learning progress. Instructors can examine the number of views and downloads for a video, individual viewing data, including specific date ranges, and more. Additionally, the quiz results can be directly imported to a Blackboard grade book. Panopto recommends the in-video quizzing as more of a formative comprehension check on the lecture material than a summative assessment tool. Please note that this process requires some setup for the faculty at the beginning of each semester. We have provided a list of resources below to help you get started on creating engaging, interactive videos for your students.
