FeedbackFruits Interactive Video


Watching videos or listening to podcasts are important study activities that take place in almost every course. However, students are often only passively consuming the video and audio content. This tool adds interactivity to the study material and transforms learning into a more collaborative learning experience. It allows teachers to provide students simple questions before class/lecture takes place, therefore saving time in class for more in-depth discussions.


FeedbackFruits (FBF) Interactive Video lets you upload or link to a video and add practice questions or comments to it. Practice questions help you and students gauge their comprehension of the video’s contents. Furthermore, questions and comments can help guide students to the most important arguments in the video, or jump start online discussions about its contents so that students are better prepared for class. To set up a FeedbackFruits Interactive Video assignment, follow the instructions below.


Step 1: Make sure that FeedbackFruits is enabled in your Nestor Course. For this go to Customization - Tool Availability and select the FeedbackFruits option of your choice (when available in Nestor). 

Step 2: In the Nestor content area go to Build Content and select Feedback Fruits Interactive Video. Give it a title and hit enter. This will create a link which will take you or your students to the online FBF environment. Once the link is created click on it to enter the FeedbackFruits Peer Feedback Tool.

Step 3: Once you are in the online environment you will have the option to either watch an instruction video or “get started”. If you are new to FBF then it might be good to watch the video. Once you are ready click get started.

Step 4: From here on the steps are fairly straight forward. At the top of the screen you can give the assignment a title.

Step 5: Upload a video or paste a link to choose a video from the internet. Optionally, you can click on the plus to add reading instructions. Then publish the video.

Step 6: Once the document is published you can add questions or discussion topics. You can add them by clicking on a certain part of the timeline (see image below). The question can be made mandatory so students can only proceed after they have answered the question. You can add a discussion topic by selecting discussion topic instead of practice question. Once you are finished you can publish the question/discussion topic.

More information

An alternative for Interactive Video is H5P which also provides you with the possibility to make videos more interactive. When you want your students to work together with an interactive video, you should not be using H5P. Then you should use the Interactive video part of FeedbackFruits.
