H5P: Interactive Video

Have you ever wanted to have a quiz question pop up while a student watches an online video that you've assigned?  Wouldn't it be neat if you could choose from a variety of question types (multiple choice, fill in the blank, long answer, discussion, etc.)?  And wouldn't it be unbelievable if the quiz results automatically flew into the Moodle gradebook?

All of this is possible with an interactive video tool from H5P! H5P is a suite of interactive media tools that you may use in your Moodle course.
