We’re excited to announce the latest release of our video platform. Ensemble Video 5.0 continues our focus on enhancing teaching and learning with video tools. In 5.0 we launched our brand new, easy-to-use video quiz feature. Additionally, we’ve made significant improvements to our personal screen capture tool, Ensemble Anthem and our Windows-based classroom software lecture capture tool, Ensemble Anthem Pro. Finally, we updated our LMS integrations to continue to make it easy for instructors to use video in the LMS.
In Ensemble Video 5.0 educators and trainers have a new tool for testing comprehension and reinforcing key concepts. The Ensemble Video Quizzes feature is a tool that allows instructors to easily create quizzes on top of their videos and then publish them in the LMS, CMS, blog or webpage.
Setup a Quiz: Quiz creators choose which video they will associate with their quiz and determine their quiz settings.
Add Quiz Questions: Quiz creators create multiple choice, multiple select and/or true false questions. Then, quiz creators can add hints and explanations for each question they add.
View Quiz Results: After a quiz has been created, Ensemble Video provides the educator or trainer results and can drill down into specific results by question and users. Additionally, they can export results to a PDF or CSV.
