How to Add Audio to Your Advanced Assessment

💡 Tip from the Otus Team: Rather than adding an audio recording to an empty item, We recommend building the question first, then adding the audio. If you haven't built the question yet, that's ok too, you can just add it later.

➡️ The example below shows how to add an audio recording to an item that contains a multiple choice question. Audio can be added to any item at any time.

Step 1 - Add the Feature

  • While in the item you wish to add the audio to, select the + symbol to add a new feature.

  • Select the Features tab and choose the Audio Player.

Step 2: Add the Audio

  • Upload the audio by selecting the + Add icon.

  • Select the gray + icon, choose your audio file, and select OK. Note - if you want to record your own audio directly into the assessment, please click here.

Step 3: Choose Player Type, Heading, and Description (all optional)

➡️ Player Type

  • Choose how the actual audio player will display for the students.


➡️ Heading and Description

  • The heading appears similar to a title, while the description is similar to an explanation.

Step 4: Optional UI and Layout Settings

➡️ UI Settings

  • UI (user interface) settings allow you to choose certain functions available to the students.


➡️ Layout
