Have you had the chance to get acquainted with the new Ensemble Version 5.0? In this new version, we’ve continued to enhance our tools for teaching, training and learning with video.

The biggest Ensemble Video Version 5.0 development is our new, simple to use, video quizzing feature. Plus, we’ve updated our Learning Management System (LMS) integrations and made significant improvements to Ensemble Anthem, our personal screen capture tool.

Read on to learn more about our new Ensemble Video Version 5.0 features:

Video quizzing

Our new online video quizzing tool makes video viewing more active and engaging for students and trainees. With this new feature, instructors and trainers can combine instruction and assessment, allowing them to more effectively reinforce key concepts through video. It also provides a new way to improve teaching and learning by making it easier for instructors to measure student progress.

Setting up a video quiz and measuring student results is easy in Ensemble Video Version 5.0, and can be done in just three steps:

  1. Choose which video you will add questions to and determine your quiz settings.

  1. 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.

  1. After your students or trainees take the quiz, you can view results and drill down into specific questions and users. You an also export results to a PDF or CSV. These results are also available in your LMS with our new integrations.

Updated LMS Integrations

In our latest version, it’s easier for teachers to access video viewership reports directly within their LMS. If your school or organization uses an LMS like Blackboard, Moodle, Canvas, Sakai, Brightspace or Schoology, our LMS integrations now support:

  • Embedding a quiz or Video Dropbox link directly within your LMS from Ensemble Video.

  • Accessing “users” and “views” reports directly within the LMS to see which users watched a video, for how long, how much of the video they watched, how many times each user viewed a video, and when it was viewed.

Updates to Ensemble Anthem

With Ensemble Video Version 5.0, Ensemble Anthem –– our screen capture solution –– is better than ever. New Ensemble Anthem and Ensemble Anthem Pro updates include:

  • Ability to add text notes on screen during an Ensemble Anthem capture.

  • Custom background images for titles and credits on screen capture videos.

  • Support recording of system audio when projecting videos on a classroom computer.

In another recent blog, you can learn more about how these updated LMS integrations and Ensemble Anthem features improve video accessibility for your students.
