How do you create interactive video?

Interaction video is normally developed in two parts. The content itself, so this may be in the form of a live action video, animated video or simple animated slide format or a mixture. This part of the content would normally contain the learning points, educational material or marketing content for the audience to engage with.

The second part of the interactive video are the interactive elements required where the user has clickable tasks and actions as a result of watching the video. For example these may be things like hotspots where the user clicks in a certain area of the video. It might include questions where the user has to select an answer in a multiple choice format or make a decision on what the next step will be in the process. These elements are created within a specific 3rd party software platform and then exported normally in an embed code to be accessed elsewhere.

How do you access interactive video?

Once the video is created it is normally hosted on a landing page where the embed code is placed. For companies this might be an area on their website or intranet that is accessed by staff only. Some companies may have their own learning management system that can act as the host for the content and interactive questions in a more basic format. 3rd party hosting platforms normally give more options for the interactive video and this can be managed by your video content provider.

Elements of Interactive Video

  • Hotspots: clickable buttons or areas that take you to another segment of the video or revel something new for you to see in the same frame or scene.
  • 360 views: the functionality for your audience to drag the screen within a video frame to get a 360 degree experience.
  • Branches: these give your audience the opportunity to choose the way they view the video, interacting with different options that can give them a totally unique view of the content.
  • Data inputs: form fields in which your audience can enter their own information for you to view, such as their name and contact details for example.
  • Quizzes: perfect for virtual training courses, these combine a mix of buttons and branching paths to create a quiz in which your audience can be assessed on certain topics.
