Adding Questions to Video in Office 365 Stream

Up until recently, it has always been difficult to add review questions or discussion points directly into a video to give it a bit more interactivity for viewers. Generally, we posted a video and added questions underneath in Blackboard or in a separate quiz.

A recent update from Microsoft now allows the linking of an online Form at specific points in the video and more importantly, it’s a simple and relatively seamless process that works well and as with all Forms, is ‘live’ and constantly updated.

To add questions to your video, create the video and upload to Office 365 Stream. Now create the Form questions in the Form app in O365 – you’ll need a new Form for each point where you add into the video. Now click on the Share tab and copy the link.

Now go back to your uploaded video in Stream and you’ll see the ‘add interactivity’ panel on the right.

From here, it’s just a matter of naming the Form, adding the link and finding the point at which you would like it to appear in your video. You can just play the video and when you find the point at which the Form should appear, click on ‘add to timeline’.

This also works as an embed code if you wish to add this to a Blackboard course.

Like any Form, the responses are live and very well presented. If you need help in setting this up, send us an email and we’ll be happy to show you the process.
