Video Quiz User Guide

It is now possible to create interactive quizzes from videos that have been uploaded to Kaltura.

When a student takes a quiz, their grade will automatically be entered into that course’s gradebook. Below are the basic steps required to request and begin using the Interactive Video Quiz (IVQ) feature:

First, send an email to with the following information:

  • The name of the person who will be creating the quiz
  • The course number and semester (e.x., PHA1234 for Spring 2019)
  • The title of the video being used for the quiz

You will then receive confirmation that IVQ has been enabled for your course.
