The MEDIALibrary makes it easy for staff and students to upload a range of media files like MPEG, AVI, Windows Media, Quick Time, and MP3 files. These are then encoded to a standard format for streaming delivery and can be viewed in a range of ways, from mobile to full screen for classroom delivery.
We are currently testing a few of the new features that will be coming soon to the MEDIALibrary and we shall let you know as soon as these become available.
You will soon be able to add interactivity to videos you upload to the Media Library. You will be able to add quiz questions, annotations and clickable links either as text or images. Once you have created your interactive video, you will be able to embed these into Moodle. Tutors will be able to then view and download the results. More on this when it becomes available. Here is a sneak peek on how it will work in the meantime.
You can also create interactive videos by adding questions and polls to videos you have uploaded to Stream. And you can create interactive videos using the H5P activity direct in Mooodle. If you would like to know more about how to use Stream and H5P to create these videos, please get in touch with the TEL team
