Interactive Video-based Learning: A User Guide

In order to make our content accessible to all types of learners, Academic Entrepreneurship (AcadEnt) authors partner with designers at Knowledge Futures, Inc. to create interactive video learning resources for select chapters. You can find our interactive elements embedded within their respective chapters adjacent to their related content.  

In addition, you can go directly to all our interactives by clicking the “Interactives” tab on the top navigation bar! However, you may need to read the entire chapter to make the most of the experience— especially the quizzes. 

Below, we provide FAQ’s about H5P video files and how they enhance learning experiences. Finally, we describe the specific content types used on AcadEnt.  

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Interactive video-based-learning?

Knowledge Futures designers use H5P software to create video files that provide interactive video-based learning. The very short videos foster interaction with the learners that is a combination of passive and participatory. Interactive video elements can present context for visual/auditory learners and quiz people on content they just read. Some types provide dialogue cards or helpful feedback on correct or incorrect answers to deepen understanding. Interactivity can range from clicking on a hotspot, to choosing to branch down a specific path of information, and everything in between like hovering and dragging words. 

As an instructor/lecturer, can I use this Interactive video material in my lessons and presentations?

Yes you can! Our mission is to provide a living, free e-book for educators and students to better understand and implement Academic Entrepreneurship in their careers. Instructors have varied open-source options available  to enhance students’ learning experience: Assign our chapters,  interactive quizzes, and recorded events as asynchronous and inquiry-based learning or as class-based viewing and discussion. See below to learn how to embed the interactive video elements in your learning management system or curricula.
