Question submission at end of Interactive video

Hi all, 

I have a quandary. Due to the format of my course, with lots of interactive 'pop out' sections when regions/hotspots are selected, I'm using a series of interactive videos to accomplish this. The path through the course is 'read/interact with a section then answer a question'. What I've noticed, in a separate test is that there is a 'submit answers' section right at the end of the interactive video. When I put my hotspots in along with an invisible 'next slide' anchor which lines up with a title in the interactive video (based on a powerpoint presentation which I've converted into a video) it will in effect move to the next slide before the submit answers dialog. As I'm putting this into a moodle course, does this mean that no grade will be recorded because, in essence, the answers haven't been submitted?

thanks, 

Fred

Hi Fred,

I'm sure I get everything but let me explain why/how we have the submit screen fo Interactive. Prior to the submit screen the trigger for sending grades to the Gradebook is to finish the whole video. This is sometimes problematic when the user/student decides to close the content prior to it being finished eventhough all activities has been answer. The submit screen gives flexibility to the author to have multiple "checkpoints" in IV. The author can either keep the submit screen, remove the submit screen or add additional submit screens as checkpoints.

I hope this helps in giving you an idea on what you can do to make sure that scores are sent to the Gradebook. If you have further questions feel free to post here.

Hi BV, 

That is helpful, if the submit screen is removed, do the grades get submitted to the moodle gradebook? Also, how do I remove the submit screen, or add additional submission screens earlier on to fit in with my set up?

 

Thanks, 

Fred

Ok, I've found how to add the submission screen in. Which is great, however I've done a test via the moodle plugin on my test site and even though I've submitted an answer there's nothing showing up in the gradebook. 

I can see what is happening here now. In the first draft of the course presentation, I had activated surface mode, so that the navigation bar was hidden to the user. What appears to be happening is that, even though the answer is being submitted through the submission dialogue, the mark isn't reporting into the gradebook until the summary button at the end of the blue nav bar is selected. I had originally chosen surface mode because I wanted control navigation through the slides and in such a way that a visitor would have to explore all of the hotspots before continuing. it looks like, if I want the marks to report properly to the gradebook then  I will have to start again with the surface mode activated.

Hi Fred,

I'm glad you found what you are looking for and you are correct when the Surface Mode is activated it does not send results to the Gradebook. This happens because the Summary slide gets diactivated in the process. The user getting to the Summary slide triggers the sending of the score from CP to the Gradebook. FYI I raised this with the developers so that either we make the message for surface mode clearer or have the possibility of not disabling the Summary slide when surface mode is activated.

"Prior to the submit screen the trigger for sending grades to the Gradebook is to finish the whole video."

What happens to old interactive videos after the update? If I don't add manually a submit screen to all of those (in Moodle) do the grades get recorded at all by 'finishing the whole video'?

Hi Toni,

To answer your question, no the scores will not be sent to the gradebook. Furthermore there is an existing thread with further details on this.
