Bongo 2: Video Assignment: Q&A and Interactive Video (CTE7536)Export this event to calendar

Wednesday, March 3, 2021 — 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM EST

Location: Online (MS Teams)

Facilitator: Victoria Feth (Centre for Teaching Excellence) and Jason Thompson (Centre for Teaching Excellence)


Bongo Video Assignment is a video assessment tool that supports experiential learning and soft skills development. It’s currently available at UW through LEARN. During this session, we’ll focus on two video assignment types:  

  • Q&A, and  

  • Interactive Video.  

Q&A allows for timed oral and visual assessments, such as clinical interviews and language learning. Interactive Video promotes active viewing by engaging students through multiple-choice questions interspersed throughout a video.  

Participants will experience both assignment types, first as students and then as instructors. As instructors, you’ll create a Q&A or Interactive Video assignment with support from facilitators. Ideas for using Video Assignment in your courses both as formative and summative assessments will be shared.  

Note: Participants wishing to create their own Interactive Videos should have their own short video (max. 2 mins) on-hand, such as a lecture or lab demonstration video. 

By the end of this workshop, participants should be able to:

  • Complete both Q&A and Interactive Video Assignments as students.
  • Create either a Q&A or Interactive Video Assignment as instructors and learning designers.
  • Identify whether/how Q&A and/or Interactive Video Assignments may enhance their students’ blended or online learning experience.
