4. If your Knowmia video contains quiz questions that you would like to integrate with the Blackboard grade center or if you would like to assign a grade based on how much of the content was watched, select Yes where it says Enable Evaluation.  You then need to include the points possible.

Note about grading Knowmia content: If your video has quiz questions, the value of each quiz question will depend on the total points possible and the number of questions on the quiz.  For example, if you assign 100 points and have 5 quiz questions embedded on the quiz, each question will be worth 20 points.  If your video does not include a quiz and you are grading based on how much content was watched, students will receive credit for the percentage of the content they watched.  For example, if you assign 100 points and the student only watches a third of the video, they will receive 33%.  In this section you also have the option to make the quiz visible to students and to set a due date. 

5. Next, in the Options area, you can decide if you want to make the content available to students right away by just selecting Yes to permit users to view this content or you can also set date and time parameters to control when the link becomes available and/or when it will close and no longer be available to students.

6. When all your settings are correct, select Submit.

7. Next, select the link you created; this will bring you to your Knowmia library.  From here, you can navigate to find the content you want to link.  You can browse your folders or any media you have in the general area.

8. If you have set a Conversation for your video and you want students to be able to use this tool, you can check the Add Conversation box to select the conversation.  Then, select the Add Media button.

9. You can now navigate back to the starting point in your Bb course to test the video by using the “bread-crumb trail” to return to the Content area. Then, select the link you created again; now, instead of going to your library, the link brings you directly to the video you selected in Step 8.
