In the ever growing fields of flipped learning, MOOCs, online learning, and blended learning, video is becoming one of the most prevalent methods of conveying learning objects to students of all ages. Instructors who assign online videos as part of their teaching methodology use a variety of sources including Khan Academy, YouTube, TED Talks, ED-TED, as well as recording their own lectures. However, the use of online videos as instructional tool has its limitations. Recently, new tools have emerged that allow instructors to create interactive videos in which custom questions can be embedded into these videos. Interactive video assessment tools allow instructors to embed custom integrated assessments for their assigned videos. These assessment tools allow instructors to assess content comprehension at any given time during the video presentation in such a way that students are required to answer questions successfully before they can proceed to the next sections of the video presentation. Through skillfully crafted questions and interactions, interactive video assessment tools can allow for timely formative assessment.
