Using Videos in your Course

Interactions are a unique feature to the AVON database that enhances student engagement for faculty by offering meaningful ways to leverage streaming video for collaboration, reflection, and assessment. When you navigate to any video, you can click the interactions tab along the top and choose add a new interaction. You can choose from:

  • Multiple choice questions 
  • Free response 
  • Polling 
  • Fill in the blank response 
  • Vocabulary matching 
  • Discussion questions 
  • Collaboration activities
  • Reflective pause

NOTE: Students will need to set up a free account to complete the interaction with feedback or a grade.

First select where in the video you would like the interaction to occur by dragging the dot to the point in the video you've chosen. Then click "Add interaction at [time]" Choose the interaction you want and fill in the blanks. You can choose what you would like to happen based on the answer given. 


Premade interactions

You can browse pre-made learning interactions by navigating to the home screen and clicking "Learning Tools" along the top then choosing interactions. You will then get a list of all the videos that have premade interactions and you have the ability to search or filter these.
