New Ensemble Video Feature: In-Video Quizzing

In our latest version 5.0, we introduced the long-requested feature: video quizzing. The Ensemble Video Quiz feature is useful for both universities and companies, allowing instructors and trainers to easily create quizzes on top of existing video content. Quiz questions can be added at strategic points throughout the video or at the end, then published on your organization’s LMS or CMS, or on a blog or webpage.

Our online video quizzing tool makes video viewing more active and engaging by encouraging viewers to participate with lessons. It also facilitates measurement of viewership and comprehension, providing another way to improve teaching and learning. The Ensemble Video quizzing feature also allows instructors and trainers to combine instruction and assessment, helping to reinforce key concepts.

Encourage active viewing

Unfortunately, when you simply assign videos for students or trainees to view, you don’t know that they haven’t turned on the video and walked away or opened a new tab to do something else online. You can’t be sure of this even if you can track to see they’ve completed a video stream, as you can with Ensemble Video.

But when you enable video quizzing on your most important media, you can ensure that your students or trainees are engaged and absorbing the content within.

Combine instruction and assessment

Beyond engagement, video quizzes can take the place of online quizzes by combining instruction with assessment.

This is a huge benefit for busy university students, because it allows them to simultaneously learn and prove to their instructors that they’ve understood the material. It’s also a benefit for companies, because it can speed up the training process for new employees, allowing them to get started in their role even sooner.

Test comprehension and reinforce key concepts

Depending on the video content, it can occasionally be easy for viewers to get caught up on the wrong details. However, video quizzing during instructional content ensures that students and trainees are being assessed on their knowledge of the most important concepts the video presents. Then, viewers will walk away with a better memory of crucial information.

Creating a video quiz is easy with Ensemble Video.

Here’s how you do it:

  1. Set up a quiz by choosing which video you will add questions to and determine your quiz settings.

  2. Create multiple choice, multiple select, true or false questions, or any combination of those and place them in strategic points throughout the video or at the end. You can also add hints and explanations for each question.

  3. After a quiz has been created and taken by your students or trainees, you can view results and drill down into specific questions and users. You an also export results to a PDF or CSV.

In this article, you can learn more about how to use our new video quizzing feature and quickly and easily create engaging video quizzes for your instructional and training videos. Or, if you’re interested in testing our video quizzing feature, you can also schedule a demo or request a free trial now.

 

Engaging Remote Employees Through Video Content

Modern workforces are changing, and most office jobs allow employees to work from anywhere with an internet connection, whether that’s from their home, a cafe near the main office or a workspace on the other side of the country. But engaging remote employees can also be difficult when they’re separate from the rest of the team.

Luckily, companies can use video platforms to more effectively engage their remote employees. Some options for engaging remote employees through a company video platform include providing company updates and CEO messages through video. Companies can also allow employees to upload their own relevant content a video platform for presentations and other projects.

Make video training more interactive

Training videos, while often crucial for training remote employees, may not be as engaging or effective as you’d like them to be when those employees aren’t in the office to ask questions or share updates on progress. To ensure employees are getting the most out of the videos and actually retaining the material being presented, you can use video quizzing to gauge understanding.

Ensemble Video’s quizzing feature, available in the new version 5.0, allows trainers to easily create and publish quizzes on top of their videos. They can create multiple choice, multiple select and/or true false questions to ensure employee understanding. Quizzes can also include hints and explanations for each question to facilitate the training process.

Provide company updates and leadership messages

Feeling disconnected from leadership and a collaborative office can be detrimental to morale. If your remote employees feel engaged with the company and its leadership, they’re more likely to do better work and feel happier doing it.

A company video platform is a great tool for engaging remote employees with company updates, messages that celebrate the work of the entire team and even personal messages from leadership about company-wide changes and how all employees –– even the remote ones –– play a role in those changes.

Allow employees to upload their own relevant video content

Remote employees may have presentations and other projects to share with the team in the main office, and with a company video platform, your remote employees have an easy, secure place to upload that content. With Ensemble Video, you can use our video Dropbox feature to quickly and easily collect those videos.

Other considerations when engaging remote employees

  • Ensure the platform you use allows adaptive bitrate streaming, so no matter what a remote employee’s internet connection is like, they’ll be able to watch videos at the highest quality available.

  • Implement a company video platform that uses HTML5 so it will be accessible on all devices and employees can slow down or speed up videos to their own viewing preferences.

  • If your company self-hosts your video platform, your remote employees may have to connect to a VPN to access its content.

Why You Should Consider an On-Premises Video Platform for Your Company

On-premises video platforms are becoming more popular among organization leaders. That’s because on-premises, or self-hosted video platforms, help companies achieve a few key goals:

  • Integrating video tools with existing hardware and resources

  • Reducing monthly costs that can be incurred from cloud-based services

  • Adding another level of protection to their most sensitive internal media content

So, is an on-premises video platform right for your company? If you’re looking for an affordable solution that allows you to leverage your existing infrastructure and resources and has heightened security, you may want to consider onboarding with an on-premises platform.

Here are some of the benefits associated with on-premises hosting:

Affordability (with the right platform)

Even though some solutions can be very expensive, with the right platform, using an on-premises video platform instead of a cloud-based one can be very economical for your organization. That’s because if you have the capacity to implement an on-premises video platform, you won’t owe monthly cloud-hosting fees to your provider, which can add up.

Ensemble Video offers the most affordable on-premises video platform solution on the market, offering more bang for your buck than other providers, along with a full suite of features and white-glove support.

Ability to leverage existing infrastructure and resources

If you already have a talented tech team on staff, or have already invested in network equipment, an on-premises video platform will allow you to continue to leverage those past investments.

Consider the hardware you’ve already been maintaining –– you can put it to good use with an on-premises video platform. And, using your own hardware to host and manage your media content can make it easier to back up and recover files should the need arise.


If you already have a talented tech team on staff, or have already invested in network equipment,…

Heightened security

If you wants to ensure your company’s video content and intellectual property is secure, you can implement an internal network password using an on-premises video platform.

By hosting your company’s training, research and development, internal communications. and other videos on your own local intranet –– instead of the public internet on a cloud-based solution –– you can ensure only individuals with authorized access are viewing your videos. You can ensure additional security on your especially sensitive content by implementing locks through usernames and passwords.

Looking For a New Lecture Capture System? These Universities Made the Switch

If you’re considering swapping your current lecture capture platform for a new solution, you’re in good company. Stetson University, Clemson University, St. John Fisher College, West Texas A&M University and Education University Hong Kong are just a sample of schools who have all switched to Ensemble Video from another lecture capture platform.

Why did they choose to make the switch? They each decided Ensemble Studio, Ensemble Video’s lecture capture solution, was a better choice for several reasons including high-touch support, flexibility, the platform’s value based on investment and more.

Flexibility of integration, video playback and security

Our customers appreciate that no matter what hardware they want to use, how and where users want to view videos or how videos need to be secured, Ensemble will suit their needs.

“By moving to Ensemble we wouldn’t be tied to an “only-works-with” appliance. We now have the flexibility to re-purpose the Matrox LCS appliances for other use cases if our classroom hardware requirements change in the future,” said Matthew Miller, Media Application Specialist for St. John Fisher College.

Miller also had this to say about our multi-device, adaptive bit-rate viewing: “The entire playback experience is fully integrated into the mobile friendly and responsive dual-stream player; including transcript, captions, search, etc.”

And of our wide range of security features, which are unmatched by other video platforms, he said: “The security features are incredibly flexible. We can restrict and allow access to specific assets, playlists, libraries, organizations, and the general public.”

Excellence in customer service and support

Time and time again, Ensemble Video customers note that our approach to customer service and support is one of their favorite things about working with us. The level of attentiveness and care shown in the demo and decision-making processes helps Ensemble stand out against video platform competitors.

Of Ensemble’s service, Matthew Miller of St. John Fisher College said: “We were already familiar with Ensemble’s track record for both technical support and sticking to their release schedules. I couldn’t say the same for [our previous video platform].”

Although St. John Fisher’s original platform and Ensemble Video offered similar capabilities, Ensemble Video presented a better value through their willingness to collaborate on future software upgrades, said Assistant Professor and Laboratory Experience Coordinator Anthony Corigliano. “Ensemble offered an opportunity to get in on the ground floor with the development of features.”

Features that meet every school’s lecture capture needs

Many educational institutions also choose to switch to Ensemble Studio, Ensemble Video’s lecture capture tool, for its user-friendly video playlist and library organization, a wide selection of hosting options and unmatched value.

  • Video library organization: Ensemble Video’s flexible, customizable video organization capabilities create a seamless, user-friendly experience for both video managers and viewers.

  • Choice of self-hosting, cloud-hosting or hybrid-hosting: Depending on your university’s security needs or available equipment, you may choose to host your videos on premise or in the cloud. With Ensemble Video, you can host your video content however suits you best.

  • Unmatched value: No other video platform provides a combination of lecture capture capabilities, white glove service and security features for the same budget-friendly pricing as Ensemble Video.

How Your Instructors Can Increase Classroom Engagement With Student Video Assignments

Even as more and more university professors begin to incorporate video and flipped learning models in their classrooms to engage their students more deeply, many students are less engaged than ever with their coursework. As watching and discussing videos becomes commonplace in university class curricula, how can instructors use the video tools at their disposal to enhance their lesson plans and further engage their students?

Many university professors have begun to encourage students to create their own video content for class assignments. That’s because creating original videos teaches students valuable technical communications skills and allows them to better absorb curriculum content.

Why all students should know how to create video content

Of course, most of today’s students know how to share videos on social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat, but many don’t actually know how to use more professional, complex tools and strategies to create compelling, informative videos.

Instructors shouldn’t take students’ existing skills in this area for granted. Students should be given opportunities to practice using video in more formal or professional settings. Visual communication is a necessary skill for nearly every career path, and professors should find opportunities to help their students learn how to use sophisticated tools to create effective video content.

How creating video content can be more beneficial than viewing it

Research has shown that “learning by teaching,” or absorbing material yourself by preparing to explain it to someone else, is an effective learning method for students. So, when instructors provide opportunities for students to teach their fellow classmates through creative and original video assignments, students can gain a deeper understanding of material than they would by simply watching the videos instructors provide.

Tools universities can use to make creating video content easy for students

When a university is equipped with a video platform, complete with organized management and security features, it’s easy for professors to assign video projects and for students to create them. Students can use their own smartphones or video recorders to capture live footage, upload those videos to their editing software of choice, incorporate other visual slides with text or photos and any add voice-overs. Then, universities or departments should have an easy-to-use system in place for instructors to collect and grade completed video assignments.

With Ensemble Video, students and instructors alike can take advantage of screen and audio capture to create compelling videos, and our Video Dropbox feature makes it easy for students to submit their video assignments for grading.

Using a Custom Employee Training Video Platform

We know it can be tempting to use a free video service like YouTube or Vimeo to host your company’s training videos. But, because companies with unique video management and delivery needs, you should avoid free platforms and use a custom one. On a custom platform, your content is more secure, you can track video viewership, you have access to more helpful features and functionalities, and you can organize videos and customize your platform however you see fit.

More secure video content and protected trade secrets

Companies must be careful to ensure their training videos are not accessible by the public. Even though free video platforms like YouTube and Vimeo offer some privacy settings like the ability to select specific users for viewing access, these settings are cumbersome for video managers and do not offer nearly the range of video security capabilities as a custom platform.

For example, a large auto parts retailer and Ensemble customer uses the platform for training retail representatives in the store and on new products. Without security options like the ability to restrict video viewing to specific users, groups or their CMS, their video content would be at risk of breach by competitors.

Other custom video platform end-to-end security options can include: user viewing restriction, playlist viewing restriction, LDAP group video access, individual video viewing restriction, restricted playlist viewing by DNS or web address, restricted playlist viewing in portal, limited number of concurrent viewers and restricted access by IP address or IP range.

More control over video tracking

An important tool for training new employees is keeping track of who is actually completing video training programs. With a custom video platform, you can track and report viewership by user including duration and percentage of video watched, which videos were viewed and how many times.

Another Ensemble customer, a manager of high-end retirement communities across the country, uses the video platform for training, including a partnership with the Culinary Institutes of America on how to prepare food and care for residents. Ensuring staff has viewed all of the correct training videos helps them maintain quality and consistency across locations.

More video features and flexible content organization and integration

When you use a custom video platform to host your company’s training videos, you have many more options than you would with a free service, including the capability to:

  • Supplement videos with attachments, links and annotations

  • Use interactive transcripts and automatic closed captioning

  • Implement search in video functionality

  • Customize your platform with your company’s branding

Additionally, you can organize your video libraries however works best for your company, whether that’s by department, topic, individual person or another categorization.

If you ever need to make updates to your employee training videos, you can simply change the video file in Ensemble Video, and it will automatically update wherever the video is embedded. You can’t say the same for YouTube –– if you need to change a video there, you’ll have to re-upload and re-embed everywhere it lives on the web.

And because many companies are interested in managing corporate Gmail accounts, having a video platform that integrates with the company’s Windows Active Directory management system is critical.

More centralized video management

When you use YouTube to host videos, you still have to tap other tools for any screen capture or meeting capture needs your company may have. You have to record and edit on another program, and only then can you upload that video content to YouTube to share with your audience. With a custom video platform like Ensemble Video, you can livestream, or capture screens or in-person presentations and trainings to share directly on the platform. And with dual-stream recording, you can even share a side-by-side live view of a screen and a meeting at the same time.

When you can use one tool to handle the entire video delivery process —from capturing, managing and playing — you can reduce the costs of training at your enterprise.

Using Video for a Flipped Classroom Part Two: The Flipped Classroom Technology You Need

In part one of this two-part blog series, we discussed the reasons why flipped classrooms –– the educational technique where “homework” and interactive discussions are done in class and lectures are viewed outside of class –– are beneficial for students, including:

  • Students experience engaging and interactive lessons

  • Students have valuable student-instructor interaction

  • Students engage in self-paced learning

  • The proven outcomes that they benefit student success

In the second part of this series, we’ll walk you through the video technology your university needs to have in place so instructors can seamlessly make the switch to a flipped classroom, including lecture capture, screen and audio capture, adaptive bit-rate streaming, video catalogue organization, a video dropbox and secure course video content.

The Flipped Classroom Technology You Need at Your University

Lecture Capture

Before students can view your instructors’ lectures online, you must have the right lecture capture recording device in place. Ensemble Video uses Matrox Monarch lecture recording devices to capture and upload classroom lecture videos to course libraries. Once the lecture is uploaded, students can access this lecture anytime to review course content.

Screen and Audio Capture

If your instructors would prefer to simply share lecture slides with a voiceover instead of recording in-classroom lectures, you can implement a tool that has screen capture and audio capture features available at your disposal.

Adaptive Bit-rate Streaming

The video technology tool you implement should allow students to watch content anywhere, from any device, no matter their network capabilities. That’s why Ensemble Video utilizes adaptive bit-rate streaming, which continually monitors available viewer bandwidth and dynamically adjusts video quality accordingly, ensuring a smooth viewing experience.

Video Catalogue Organization

Implement a flipped classroom technology that allows you to organize videos and playlists by course instructor, department and more. Ensemble’s video platform is equipped with an easy-to-use management structure that accounts for the unique needs of individual course instructors and viewers.

Video Dropbox

With a video dropbox, students can upload videos to submit assignments, or share videos with fellow classmates they’re working on projects with. Creating video during class periods can also become a part of the flipped classroom experience for more engaging lessons.

Secure Course Content

It’s not enough to just put video content online. Your lecture and supplementary course videos should also be secure. Each course, instructor or department will require varying security settings for video content, so make sure to implement flipped classroom technology that allows you to set individual security settings.

Common Challenges When Implementing Flipped Classroom Technology and How to Tackle Them with Ensemble

Instructor Opt-in

Some university IT administrators may be concerned that even when you have flipped classroom technology in place, instructors will continue to use their old methods instead of new tools that enable flipped classrooms. This could be the result of instructors being intimidated by new video technology. But here’s the good news: Ensemble Video is easy to use, and instructors can get training before trying to use it alone. When you onboard with Ensemble Video, the Ensemble team trains your tech staff so they can work with instructors and other staff at your university on how to implement flipped classroom technology.

Budget

Especially at smaller universities, getting flipped classroom technology ready for all instructors can be an expensive feat. That doesn’t have to be a challenge when you use Ensemble Video. Ensemble offers a high-quality, budget-friendly video platform for universities who want to modernize their classrooms.

Using Video for a Flipped Classroom Part One: Why Your Instructors Should Flip Their Classrooms

Over the last decade, flipped classrooms have gained popularity in classrooms of all levels –– from grade schools to universities. In a flipped classroom, students watch videos of lectures and other supplementary content, and come to class prepared to discuss and apply what they learned. This method is particularly useful in universities. Flipped classrooms allow students to stay engaged and more actively learn during class time, get more quality face time with their instructors and learn at their own pace, all with proven results.

With more modern tools available to universities and accessible for students than ever, all college-level instructors should implement flipped classrooms to achieve better learning outcomes.

Why Switch to a Flipped Classroom?

Engaging and Interactive Lessons

Active participation holds student interest much more than sitting in silence and listening to an instructor’s lecture. When students are provided with background materials before coming to class, they’re armed with a baseline understanding of a topic and can better comprehend additional concepts and apply their learning during class time.

More Valuable Student-Instructor Interaction

Instead of just listening as they hear information for the first time, students can bring questions they thought of ahead of time. Instructors are present to answer their students’ prepared questions, ensure students are moving in the right direction and assess their understanding. This also allows students to make better connections with their instructors during class time, instead of additional office hour visits that may not fit in with their schedules.

Self-Paced Learning

Learning at one’s own pace is particularly important for students with visual and hearing impairments or other disabilities. A flipped classroom makes lecture and other content more accessible for learners with special needs, and provides the opportunity to clarify any content with instructors during class time.

Proven Results

Not only is a flipped classroom beneficial in theory, teachers have seen the positive results firsthand. In a Flipped Learning Network survey of 453 teachers, 67 percent reported higher test scores –– especially for students in advanced classes or students with special needs –– and 80 percent noted better student attitudes.

Common Objections to Flipped Classrooms: Debunked

A Flipped Classroom Means More Work for the Instructor

Some believe that flipped classrooms are a burden for already busy instructors because they require more planning for class time in addition to preparing lectures. However, when instructors can use class time to interact with students and answer questions instead of just lecturing, their office hours won’t be as busy. And, they’ll be able to more effectively assess students during class periods, allowing them to use less of their own time grading.

According to the Flipped Learning network, in that same survey of teachers mentioned above, 99 percent of teachers who flipped their classes said they would do it again the next year. Clearly, instructors don’t view this method as a burden.

Some Students Won’t Watch Lectures Outside of Class, Others Won’t Attend Class

Another common objection to flipped classrooms is the belief that some students won’t actually watch lectures before coming to class or other videos necessary for background knowledge and will instead just rely on what’s discussed in the classroom. Others believe that students simply won’t attend class when the lecture and other videos are available online.

On the contrary, students will know that they need to watch the videos to understand what’s going on during classroom discussions, and instructors can assess students’ understanding during that class time. Also, instead of skipping class, students will actually look forward to more engaging classroom sessions where they can interact with one another and instructors for a more hands-on approach to content.

In the next blog in our two-part series on flipped classrooms, we’ll talk about how your university can implement the video tools necessary for flipping classrooms. In the meantime, contact Ensemble to request a free trial or schedule a demo of our platform.

Using Ensemble’s Video Security Features at Your College

Whether you’re abiding by video licensing rules or protecting content for students and instructors, implementing video security features at your college is extremely important. That’s why we’ve made providing a wide range of video security features a priority.

While other providers offer a handful of video security features, Ensemble Video’s security capabilities are truly unique. Here’s how:

Flexibility of security structure

Through Ensemble, video security features at your college include a host of options from the highest, institution-wide level all the way to the most granular, video- or user-specific level. This flexibility of security structure differentiates Ensemble Video from other video platform providers.

You can select individual security settings for:

  • a single video

  • a course library

  • an entire organization (i.e. a business school, media studies department, etc.)

  • an entire college

Our flexibility of video management allows you to easily make individual changes to video security settings at every one of these levels.

Additionally, Ensemble Video offers the flexibility of selecting AND/OR options for each of these settings. Each security setting can be connected with “AND” and “OR” statements, adding further logic to video security features and your college. For example, you can require a viewer to have a login AND be on campus to access a video, or you could require a viewer to be on campus OR have a login to access that video.


Ensemble Video’s security capabilities are truly unique. Here's how.

Flexibility of security features

The most important feature you need to secure your university video content is the ability to restrict video viewing to your college’s learning management system (LMS), which is typically done by limiting viewing to certain web addresses. This is a crucial feature for protecting licensed videos and ensuring your college stays compliant with licensing requirements.

In addition to only permitting video viewing through LMS via restricted web addresses, Ensemble offers an array of additional options to protect video security, including the ability to:

  • Restrict video viewing by IP address. This feature allows you to restrict video viewing to a specific lab, room or even individual computer. For example, a video may only be viewable from your library. This video security feature also allows you to remain compliant with video usage rules.

  • Restrict number of concurrent video viewers. If video licensing requirements also dictate that only one person can view a video at one time, Ensemble Video offers a feature that allows you to limit number of viewers. So, if video licensing allows only one viewer to watch Avatar, we can help.

  • Restrict videos by requiring a login form or password. With this feature, users log in with their campus username and password to view a video. This way, only individuals associated with your college can view a video. This feature also provides the added benefit of improved video tracking. With username login, an instructor can report on which students are watching videos and for how long.

  • Restrict videos to library, organization or entire institution. Ensemble Video enables administrators to enforce security settings to specific libraries, organizations or institutions. For example, if you would like an instructor’s media library content to only be viewable in Moodle, you can use the library-specific security restrictions. If you would would like your Business School’s media to be limited to on-campus viewing, you can use organization-specific security restrictions. And if you would like your entire institution’s media content to be restricted to your Identity Provider AND/OR an IP address range, you can use the institution-specific security restrictions area to enable this setting.

Customization

When you onboard with Ensemble Video, our team works directly with you to ensure the video security features at your college are set to exactly what you need. If there are any video security needs unique to your college, the Ensemble team will help you figure out how to achieve them.

Our team is constantly working to implement new features based on customer needs, and we strive to quickly make any improvements based on your feedback. With that in mind, the upcoming version of Ensemble Video will have improved statistics reporting for LMS and user viewing data, among other improvements.
