Handouts are files of any size and type (yes, you heard that right) that you can attach to any certain point within your videos, right through built-in VIDIZMO Studio without any integration with third-party tools. In addition to video content, you can now enrich your audience with the aided documents, downloadable software files, or presentation slides that can substantially help them in either setting up your product for further use, or in better grasping the concepts being delivered in a tutorial guide.
Now include any files, documents or important notes relevant to the content right within the video itself, and explore the power of advanced contextualized marketing and training. To learn more about it, see: Understanding Handouts.
Before you start
- Make sure you log into your Portal as an Administrator, Manager or Moderator to be able to use Studio Space to insert a Handout within a video
- To understand more about Studio Space, and how certain options will redefine your interactive video experience, see: Understanding Video Interactivity using Studio Space.
Go to Studio Space
1. From the Portal's Homepage:
i. From the top left navigation menu, expand Admin tab and click on the Media Manager to manage your portal's media centrally.
ii. After locating the video you wish to add interactive media to, click on its overflow menu.
iii. Go to Studio Space.
Insert Handout within Video
1. Here you are at your own very own Studio Space, from where you can add interactive media to enhance your audience's video experience. Here's how:
i. Click on Handout to add one at any point during a video.
ii. Here, you will see a list of all interactive quizzes added within a video, in your case none. Click on Add New to proceed.
2. Now comes your playground, here is how you can choose quiz and determine player behaviour when it renders during your video:
i. Click on Choose File to browse your machine to find the relevant file to be attached within the video, you'll see an indicative icon when the file is being uploaded.
ii. Following will be a listing of the files that have successfully been uploaded in the portal, from where you can edit its name, or remove the file if you may. You can attach as many files as you wish (of whatever size) against one instance in a video. I have attached 4 files against a particular instance as an example below.
iii. Load at allows you to drop your quiz on any point in the video using the scrubber below the player while viewing the video content at that point for ease of context.
iv. After you are done inserting handouts at specific contexts within video, you can choose to add another timed set of handouts by clicking on Add New. Similarly, if you change your mind and wish to redo the attachments from scratch, you can briskly remove the handouts too.
vii. Now's the time to tell the world! Click on Publish button at the top right to propagate your changes to your video, otherwise click Discard to lose the masterpiece you just created.
Note: If you happen to refresh the page during the process by error or chance, your changes will not be saved. So make sure to press Publish as soon as you think you've reached the mark!
