Multiple Choice

Multiple Choice

No, BiBiKit Online does not include options to add quizzes to slides.

But you can use BiBiKit Online, and the BiBiKit PowerPoint Add-in, to add basic multiple choice questions to slides. No score-keeping, no personalized feedback, no random order of questions. But no text needed either, it can be all video! 

Two examples in Italian Sign Language: 

Here's how you do this: 

1. Make two videos: Video 1: Questions, Video 2: Feedback. The Feedback Video can be a video with still pictures, or a video of a signer who gives feedback. You can make the feedback video with a basic video-editor. Just import images to the video-editor, and add the images to the video-timeline. Then, export the video.
Important: the first frame of the two videos should be neutral. Maybe just a colour or a Question mark, or the name of the Quiz. 

When you use two videos, the Questions and the Feedback can be in two different locations on your slides. If you want, you can use only 1 video. Add the feedback, to your Questions video. Now, Questions and Feedback will be in the same location on the slide.

2. Upload the videos to BiBiKit.

3. Add the 2 videos to a slide.

4. Add a text-frame (with a text or a picture) that the user has to click, to see the question. Link this text or picture to question 1 in your Questions video.

5. Add a text-frame for the multiple choice answers. Use text, numbers or pictures for the answers.

6. Link each answer to a section in the 'Feedback Video': link the correct answer to the "YES!" or "Thumbs up!" part of the video, and the incorrect answers to the "No..." or "Thumbs down..." part of the video.
This is why the Feedback Video has to start with a neutral image. You don't want the "Thumbs up" or "Thumbs down" images to be visible, BEFORE the user selects an answer!

7. Duplicate the slide, and make the changes necessary for question 2. Make sure that the correct answer is not always in the same position ; -)   
Then do the same for all your questions.

8. Done!

Sign Bilingual interviews

Sign Bilingual interviews

During a BiBiKit presentation, someone in the audience asked if she could use BiBiKit for her work as a reporter. She interviews deaf people in sign language, then has to rewrite the story in Dutch print for the magazine. She records the people she interviews on video, but translating and editing are a lot of work!

The BiBiKit PowerPoint Add-in could be a good tool for this. No, we haven't tried it, but please let us know your experiences!

  1. Open a new PP presentation.
  2. Import the video of your interview, with the BiBiKit 'convert video' button.
  3. First, divide the video into manageable 'chunks' by adding bookmarks. A 'chunk' is the text that you can type on one slide. Maybe one question per slide, maybe 5 minutes per slide. That's for you to decide.
  4. Use the 'Continue video on new slide" (a BiBiKit button), to create a new slide for each 'chunk' of your video.
  5. On the first slide, add bookmarks to the video. Again, you choose where you put the bookmarks.
  6. On your slide, make a list of the sections of your video, that you've created with the bookmarks. The easiest way is to just make a list: 1, 2, 3, 4, .. etc.
  7. Link each number in your list to a section of the video. E.g. 1: linked to your first section of the video (bookmark 1 to bookmark 2), 2: linked to the second section (bookmark 2 to bookmark 3), etc.
    You can do this with the BiBiKit "Insert link to video" button.
  8. Do the same, for all slides. 
  9. Now, you can type the text of your article or translation, directly on the slides. Maybe next to your numbers. Or: you open Word side by side with PowerPoint, and type your text in Word. The good thing: you can play your video and type your text, section by section, and chunk by chunk.

And: you can experiment with the order of the information in your interview. Just change the order of the slides, and maybe start your article with the last question that you asked!

Then, copy and paste the text from your PP slides to Word, or save your PP presentation in a format that your editors can use.

10. Done!

You can download the BiBiKit PowerPoint Add-in for free, from this website. 

But: it only works on Windows computers (Windows 7 or 8), and PowerPoint 2010 and 2013... 

Protect your videos?

Protect your videos?

The presentations that you make with BiBiKit Online are not protected: people can download your videos and your pictures. 

If it is OK that other people use your videos - but you would like to get credit for your work - then add a watermark to your videos, with your name and/or your website. You can't do this in BiBiKit, you have to do this before you upload your video.

Transparent overlays

Transparent overlays

You can use pictures or backgrounds that have transparent 'holes', to show only part of your video or images. You can make pictures that have transparent areas (or: that are completely transparent!) in most paint and photo programs. Save the picture as a .png file, to keep the transparency. 

Below are two examples: if you put either of these pictures on top of your video (= higher in the "Active Assets" list), then the video will play 'inside' the picture frame. You may have to resize the video a bit, to make sure that it is in the right location and has the correct size.
