eHelp Kaltura - Video Quiz Assignment

Set up within Canvas. Kaltura's video quiz feature is integrated into Canvas. Scores students earn on their video quizzes will be pushed automatically to the course Gradebook of any course in which you connect the video quiz in an assignment.

Kaltura video quizzes are not designed to work well with long videos. If your video content would result in a longer video, it is recommended that the video be split into and delivered in smaller, shorter, separate videos.

Students who pause a video quiz and come back to it after more than an hour. The video quiz results will not be passed to the Canvas gradebook because Kaltura saves the submission cookie only for 1 hour.

Students who enter the video quiz assignment in Canvas before the "Available Until" date and time but finish it after the assignment has closed.
