One way to make your video more interactive and to have knowledge checks is to embed quiz questions throughout your video. This allows to you check student knowledge throughout a video and increase student engagement. Integrating quizzes can turn videos into an active learning experience instead of a passive learning experience. They can also increase knowledge retention as users have to pay close attention to the video and get a chance to use their knowledge as they learn it.
