Upload Images/Media to Assessment Questions

Follow

Course administrators and assessment authors may add image and media content to assessments to facilitate differentiated content and learning. This supports students with accommodations or any kind of learning need.

Audio and video files can be added to question stimulus and question responses. Additionally, audio and video can be recorded directly in the assessment and added to a question stimulus and question responses.
