Starting today, we’re launching a new video series: every month, we’ll be featuring a video quiz created by an iSLCollective user, and walking you through what makes it really cool and how we would use it in class. The first featured quiz is on reflexive pronouns, based on a hidden camera video about a prank where a school girl is asking passers-by to help her lift buckets full of coins.

In the tutorial video, we look at three different question types featured in the video quiz (gapfill, multiple choice, putting the words in order), talk through the four different play modes, and demonstrate casino mode. We also cover technicalities such as how to make the quiz question visible if there is a „more videos” banner, so you come across as the pro video quiz teacher that you are when you use it with your students!

I can highly recommend his training based on my first-hand experience: I took the 5-day course in gorgeous Barcelona 2 years ago.
