YuJa Video Quiz allows the instructor to enhance the asynchronous lecture video to be more active by embedding interactive questions. It serves a similar purpose to an iClicker activity for the in-person class. Instructors can add prompted questions to guide student learning and/or self-practice to pause, think and reflect while watching the video. It can also be used as a class participation activity for remote learning.  The instructor can also add a YouTube or Vimeo video and create a YuJa Video Quiz for students to practice while watching the video.

What is a YuJa Video Quiz?

YuJa Media Server not only allows you to create and store your instructional videos but also provides many learning/teaching tools to help faculty to monitor, analyze and assess students’ learning on the video. One of these tools is YuJa Video Quiz which allows instructors to embed check-in questions (different types of questions) or reflective pause questions within the video to be interactive. YuJa Video Quiz can be provided as a self-assessment or as a graded assessment in Canvas. YuJa Video Quiz enables students to actively engage with your pre-recorded or other instructional videos and helps them to check their learning process (metacognition, Colette A. Daiute) with prompted check-in questions (iClicker question type) for them to think and reflect on the topic they just watched.

Why use YuJa Video Quizzes?


Actively Engages Students
This tool allows instructors to engage students during asynchronous content delivery by building in an interactive component.



Check-in Students’ Learning with Prompted Questions
Allowing to add check-in questions in video to help students go through some metacognitive process to check their learning while they are watching the videos. This is a similar active learning strategy implemented in the face-to-face teaching environment by using iClicker.


Time to Pause, Think, and Reflect
Responding to content challenges students to evaluate their own understanding of the content. Simultaneously, the check-in creates an opportunity to correct misconceptions or misunderstandings of the content.
