Kaltura Video Quiz

Introduction to Kaltura Video Quiz

Kaltura's Video Quiz (VQ) integrates and works seamlessly with Kaltura MediaSpace (KMS) and all Kaltura Application Framework (KAF) based applications, such as different Learning Management Systems (LMSs) and Social Business Software (SBSs). The VQ feature is based on the Kaltura Player version 2.x.

How Does Video Quiz Work?

As users watch a video, a question appears at its chosen point; the video continues after the user answers the question. Depending on configuration, users may be allowed to repeat sections, skip questions, revise answers, receive hints, and discover the correct answers. Practically, VQ increases engagement, tests knowledge and retention, and gathers media effectiveness data. Users can watch media segments multiple times in preparation for answering questions; and receive feedback, correct answers, and in-depth explanations when completing questions.

On the playback side, VQ is part of Kaltura Player and is supported by the player wherever media quizzes are embedded and presented. Viewing and use is supported on any digital device.

Software Requirements

The following are the minimum software requirements for VQ to operate:

  • KMS/KAF – 5.80.11  – SaaS customers will automatically be upgraded to this version.
  • Quiz Creator (Kaltura Video Editing Tools) – 2.0 – SaaS customers will automatically get this version.
  • Player – The Quiz player (ID can be found in Quiz module) should be version 2.70 or later. Some features in the Quiz require an upgrade to the player, please see the Release Notes for specific details. 

Updating the Player version is done through the Player Studio (See the Universal Studio Information Guide for more information) or in some cases through the KMS admin.

Using Existing Players with VQ 

If you choose to use an existing player ID (must be version 2.40 or later)  for the VQ (and not one that was automatically created after you enabled the Quiz module) make sure you also include the following plugins to the player you selected in the Player Studio:

  • For the playback player (found under Quiz module, in quizPlayerId field), add:
"quiz": {
      "plugin": true
  • For the quiz editor player (under Widgets module, in keaPlayerId field) it is advised to keep the default player but you can also do the following:

Make sure the player you use in the editor has the following configuration:

"customButton": {
    "plugin": true

and also

"largePlayBtn": {
 "plugin": false

 You can use your own existing player for only one of these options.
