Instructors can embed polling questions into video or audio media and then post that video (also called Interactive Media) into a Class or 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 pins 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. You may need to use the scrollbar, identified in the below figure, to see all of the poll options, depending on the length of the question, the type of poll, and the number of response options.
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 as the polling question in the above figure indicates, or reorder a list, or enter a response into a text box. 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.
Your response along with the Correct response appears. In addition, if the instructor has provided feedback for the polling question, you may see that below the response area.
The Submit button turns into a Continue button, allowing you to continue viewing the video, up to the next polling question. Alternately you can click Play on the playback bar to continue.
Note that if there is a transcript for the media, 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 ALL of the polling questions.
In addition, if there is a discussion post with a media (location) reference, you will not see that post or any replies to it until you have answered all polling questions that reside prior to the referenced location. You will see a notification in the Discussion panel that indicates one or more posts is currently hidden.
