The playback bar identifies where the questions will appear along a timeline. Students simply click on the play icon and start watching the video. At a specified point during the playback, a question or comment will appear to prompt students. The comment feature prompts students to read the text and click to continue the video viewing. When presented with a multiple choice or open ended question, students consider their options and submit a response. If the answer is correct, the video continues along the timeline. If the response is not correct, the student can continue, or they can replay the section of video and try the question again.
