How do you make your tutorials interactive? I'm interested in incorporating quizzes embedded in my tutorials for more active learning.

I read the suggestion to use Google forms and had this thought. You could use a quiz (Google form or something else) before the tutorial, in the tutorial, and after the tutorial. This usage would allow the learner to chart their learning experience. What do you think?

Hi Kristin, Sophia has a simple quizzing feature that allows you to add quizzes to your tutorials. I recently observed my daughter and her friend as they watched a video on the periodic table on Sophia. They were actually excited to take the quiz and it really seemed to get them more engaged as they discussed the question and answer choices.

Carrie has put together a nice playlist on Sophia's quizzing feature. You can find it here:

Thanks for your input, Sonya. I have too, but I usually have them fill out the Google Form AFTER they have watched the video.
