Instructors can embed polling questions into video or audio media and post that video into pages in your Learning Management System or Virtual Learning Environment (LMS/VLE). An LMS/VLE would be something like Blackboard, Canvas, Moodle, Brightspace/D2L, or Sakai and is likely the same place your instructor keeps other course materials and possibly a link to classes in Echo360.
A video with embedded polls looks something like the figure shown below. It plays like a normal video but has polling questions in it that prohibit viewing sections of the video until you have responded to the questions. In the below figure, the dots on the timeline indicate the locations of those polling questions.
Click Play on the video.
When your playback reaches a polling question, the video pauses, and the polling question appears in the viewer.
How you respond to the polling question depends on the type of activity or question it is. You may need to select from a list of options, or reorder a list, or enter a response into a text box, as is the case with the type of polling question shown above. See Responding to Polling Question Activities if you need specific instructions for responding to each type of activity.
After you enter your response, click Submit.
The Submit button turns into a Continue button, allowing you to continue viewing the video, up to the next polling question.
Note that if there is a transcript for the video, it appears below the viewing pane. You can click Hide to hide the transcript if you want to. Then click Show to re-show it in the transcript panel. Also note that you cannot view the transcript past any polling question location you have not yet answered. Nor can you download the transcript until you have responded to the questions.
