Yesterday we introduced Stream, but only so we could continue the series on Microsoft Forms, because you can add Microsoft Forms inside a video on Microsoft Stream to make them interactive! Welcome to Day 69 of 365 Ideas for Office 365- Forms in Stream. Microsoft Office and Office 365 have a vast array of tools that work great as standalones, but they integrate really powerfully as well. The Streams and Forms integration is a terrific example of #BetterTogether.
When you are inside of Stream looking at one of your own videos, to the right of the video is a field that has two tabs- transcript and interactivity.
When you click to add a Form, it prompts you to enter the url for the Form. You will need to grab this from within Forms. (This is still a relatively new feature. I’m hoping the integration improves so you will be able to search for your existing Forms from right here in Stream, or even create a new one here.)
Creating the Interactive Form
From within Forms you can create a new quiz or survey to go with your video.
If you already made it, you just need to click to open it then go to the share menu to get the url.
Share settings in Forms
You can choose either anyone with the link or only people in my organization, but Stream is only available within your organization, so anyone accessing this Form within Stream will have to be logged into OneDrive/Office 365 anyway. Copy the link and head back to Stream.
Paste the url in and give your Form a name. You can then place it at any point in the video by dragging the scrubber (the little dot on the video timeline) to whatever point you want it.
Multiple Forms in One Interactive Video
Now, it is entirely possible to add more than one Form at different points in the video. This will work seamlessly for students, but not so much for teachers. For students, they can stop the video more than once to answer several questions in context. However, at this time, for the teacher, each separate Form will have separate results, and a separate Excel spreadsheet with those results.
