Do you want to include videos in your advanced assessment? You've come to the right place!
Acceptable file types: YouTube, Vimeo, Brightcove (method 2 only), mp4

There are two methods for adding a video into an Advanced Assessment:
Method 1: Using the Simple Feature: this allows you to add a video directly into the content of a question so that it appears along with the question. These are added using the Rich Text Toolbar, so they can appear in any question type.
Method 2: Using the Video Player Feature: this will embed the video into the item as a stand-alone video, not necessarily embedded into a specific question.
