Microsoft Forms has improved a lot over the last few years. In fact, there are some things about it that I prefer over Google Forms. One of those things is the way in which you can use videos as question prompts. 

In Microsoft Forms you can include a video as a part of question instead of having it be its own stand-alone item as Google Forms makes you do. In Google Forms you insert a video then write a question directly below it. The flaw with that system is that it’s easy to accidentally move the video away from its corresponding question(s). In Microsoft Forms the video is actually a part of the question prompt so that the video and its corresponding question are always connected. 

In this video I demonstrate how to use video in Microsoft Forms. The video is part of a series of Microsoft Forms tutorials available on my YouTube channel and here on Practical Ed Tech

Applications for Education

Using short video clips in a quiz or review activity is something that I do fairly regularly. I use short, often silent, clips to have students make observations about network activity then answer a few questions. The advantage of Microsoft Forms is that when I use the “shuffle questions” option the videos are still connected to the questions unlike in Google Forms where the videos aren’t always connected to the questions after using the shuffle option.
