Vizia

The Technology: Vizia

Vizia is website that allows you to add questions, quizzes and polls right into existing videos.

To begin, you first choose a source video that has already been posted to YouTube or Wistia. Then, click on “new video,” and enter the URL of the source video. Finally, choose the interactive elements that you’d like to add into the video. You can add open-answer questions, polls, multiple-choice questions or a call to action in the form of exclamatory text or a link to a website. 

Once you have completed your additions, the finished video will appear on the Vizia website, and you can share it with others via link. Vizia videos can also be embedded onto other websites. 

As your viewers answer the embedded questions, their answers will populate a spreadsheet that you can open in Google drive or download as a .csv file. Note that students can opt to skip questions as they’re viewing the video, so you may not get answers to all your questions. 

To use Vizia, sign up for a free Vizia account, or use your Google credentials.

In Your Classroom

  • Invite students to view videos and suggest their own polls and questions about them. Then create a Vizia video that incorporates them into it, and share it back with them. 
  • Viza is a great tool to use as part of a flipped classroom lesson.
  • Consider making a class video and embedding questions for parents to answer. This could be particularly useful for social justice or “what would you do?” type issues.
