aka. “Choose Your Own Adventure” – takes the viewer on a customizable journey by “controlling” the content seen.
Clickable buttons that can reveal information within the video. Increase click-through rates by creating ‘hot-spots’ that direct the viewer to related content within the video or external content such as an article on your website.
Questions & Polling

Call To Action
In video pop-out forms: Book Here, Learn More, Contact Us, etc.
True / False
A simple way to check knowledge, true/false is a great way to get the viewer used to interactive elements so they are ready for more complex knowledge checks when the time comes.
Fill in the Blanks
More on the challenging side, fill in the blanks allows you to provide incomplete words or phrases that the user has to complete. You can provide multiple different solutions and hints to make things a little easier.
Text dragging is similar to fill in the blanks, but a little easier. It allows you to create a statement and provide the answers. The user just has to drag them to the proper spots.
These allow the viewer to download a file (document, presentation, report etc.) directly from the video.
Drag & Drop
This is where things really start to get interesting. You can provide images or words that the user can drag to the correct spots and check their answers. As simple or complex as you want, drag and Drop is a great way to ensure your audience is having fun while learning.
A statement is similar to a multiple choice, but a little simpler. It’s like a true/false but you can have more than two statements so you can make it as challenging as you want.
