Quizzing in Panopto

The quiz tool in Panopto can be used for low-stakes self-assessments that are housed within an existing Panopto session. Quizzes can be inserted at numerous points within an existing recording to assess student comprehension, support key concepts, and increase engagement with videos. Quizzes in a Panopto video will automatically pause playback, so students can take as much time as needed to answer questions.
