Screencast-O-Matic Rounds Out Product Offering with New Interactive Video Quizzing and Polling Functionality

Interactive video quizzes, polls, and surveys make learning engaging, effective, and fun

Screencast-O-Matic, the all-in-one screen capture, video editing, and media hosting platform that takes video creation, collaboration, and sharing to the next level, today introduced interactive video quizzing. The all-new interactive video quizzing functionality brings a robust set of features to quickly and easily create video quizzes, polls, and surveys. Now educators and businesses alike can foster a more effective, engaging, and fun learning environment through video.

Educators can transform any video into an interactive lesson with quizzing. Interactive quizzing motivates students to focus and better engage with the content while enabling teachers to continually assess engagement, understanding, and retention. Quizzing also provides teachers with valuable feedback and helps educators continually optimize their instructional content for student engagement and learning. Students can create their own quizzes and polls to demonstrate their understanding and mastery of a topic or subject, do real research, or bring their class or community together.

Businesses can gather intelligence on their content and engage with their audience and employees in new ways. They can use video quizzing and polls to engage, and better understand their audience as well as certify for required technical, legal, and soft skills training. Talent development professionals can use quizzing for employee onboarding, compliance training, and professional development. Marketers can use quizzing and polling to engage leads, build community, and measure brand perceptions. Product teams can use surveys to understand customer needs, improve user experience, and shape better products. Teams of all sizes can make fun quizzes and polls to build and strengthen relationships within teams.

“I am beyond excited to see how educators and businesses take advantage of our new interactive video quizzing tools,” exclaimed Matt Champagne, CEO of Screencast-O-Matic. “Video polls and quizzes are a fantastic way to reach, educate, and engage any audience in this ever-changing complex world. We built our quizzing functionality from the ground up under our mantra of making video communication effective, simple, fast, and affordable.”
