Kaltura includes an easy to use wizard for creating an unlimited number of questions that you can embed at chosen points in your lecture. The multiple choice format allows for 2, 3, or 4 answers and flexible settings give you the ability to choose if learners can skip questions, revise answers, get hints and/or discover the correct answers. Data collection tools provide user-based and question-based analytics.  This use of interactive video can increase student engagement and improve learning outcomes.
