Best Practices for Using the Panopto Quiz Tool

In this article

Instructors can add quiz questions to their Panopto videos at any point on the editing timeline. Panopto Quizzes can only be taken by students who are logged in to ELMS-Canvas.

NOTE: We recommend using Panopto Quizzes as self-checks for students, providing pausing points for students to reflect on content. If you would like to assess student engagement with the recording, create an ELMS-Canvas Quiz and direct students to complete it at the end of the recording. For additional information, see Manage Quizzes and Surveys in ELMS-Canvas Courses for Instructors.
