Canvas - Adding a Kaltura Interactive Video Quiz as an Assignment (UW-Madison)

This document describes how to add a Kaltura Mediaspace Interactive Video Quiz (IVQ) as an assignment in Canvas that connects to the gradebook.

Warning: At this time we do NOT recommend that you use Kaltura Interactive Video Quizzes (IVQs) with Canvas Assignments or by inserting them with the Kaltura starburst icon (Kaltura MediaSpace starburst icon) in the rich text editor due to numerous issues.

Kaltura Interactive Video Quizzes (IVQs) do not preview with the Student View Canvas functionality as of 7/1/17. If you try using Student View with a video quiz you will either get an error message: access denied or it will not load at all and display a white screen. A workaround to preview a video quiz is to add a colleague or TA to your course and have them take the quiz or to embed IVQs using Kaltura MediaSpace embed code as outlined in the Kaltura issues document.

When students complete an IVQ using the Kalutra/Canvas integration the IVQ will not show students which questions they got correct or incorrect, how they previously answered the question, or the correct answer:
Kaltura IVQ not showing the student's answer or the correct answer when using the Kaltura/Canvas integration
The student also can not re-answer the question or take an IVQ more than once. There is no way to reset a student's IVQ attempt. Kaltura MediaSpace analytics for IVQs can take up to a day or two to update. We have also had reports that if a student takes an IVQ using the Kaltura/Canvas integration and then tries taking the IVQ in Kaltura MediaSpace the behavior will exhibit there as well. When an IVQ is reloaded while a student is logged into Kaltura MediaSpace, the student will see the summary screen at start of the IVQ rather than the end.

If you do decide to use an IVQ please only use it for student review of material and do not assign points. We also recommend that you keep a copy of your questions, answers, and any other "why" or "hint" text in an external document (for example Word or a Google Doc) in case students have trouble accessing your IVQ material.
