Inserting Videos into Google Forms

If you are wanting to incorporate videos as part of your digital lesson planning (and you've already been using EdPuzzle and want to add some variety), you can easily insert videos into a Google Forms and have students answer questions about them. Again, it is very easy to do, and if you set the Google Forms as a self-grading quiz, students can immediately see their scores.

Directions
  1. Open up a new Google Forms
  2. Push the Add Video icon. 
  3. On the screen which comes up, either do a search of a particular YouTube video or enter in its URL if you know it. NOTE - you may only use YouTube videos for this.
  4. When you finish, click on Select.
  5. You will now see your video on your Google Form. Add a title if you wish.
  6. Click on the Add Video icon to insert another video or Add Question to insert a question.
Observations
  1. Because you can only use YouTube videos, students may not be able to access it at school depending on your school's filter. My district does not allow students to view YouTube video using school Wi-fi. 
  2. My Latin 3s are currently reading Perseus et Rex Malus, and this week for their digital work, they were reading the last chapter where Perseus receives winged sandals in a dream. To cover the cultural aspect, I created a Google Forms, inserted two video clips (Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief, and Clash of the Titans) of Perseus receiving winged sandals or some mode of transportation (Clash of the Titans has Perseus use the winged horse Pegasus), had students view them, and then asked students to answer a very short paragraph question where they were to compare/contrast the two video clips with the account in the passage.
  3. Keep the video clips short. Students do not want to watch a 10-minute clip and then have to answer questions about it.
