Once a poll is added to a video, it becomes an embedded poll. You can edit the poll to be specific to the media it is in without affecting the original poll used to create it.
Editing an embedded poll means editing the question text, the response options, the identified correct answer, or the timestamp of the question location. You cannot change the TYPE of polling question it is by editing; you must add a different poll if you want a different type of question. If you prefer your Polls be as specific as necessary so as not to have to edit them once embedded, see Editing Polls.
The instructions on this page are for accessing the polling questions to edit AFTER they are embedded in a piece of media. For specific details on working with the various polling types see the following help articles:
- Creating a Multiple Choice Activity
- Creating an Ordered List Activity
- Creating a Short Answer Activity
- Creating a Numerical Activity
- Creating an Image Quiz Activity
IMPORTANT: If you are editing an embedded poll to which students have already responded, the poll is seen as a NEW poll in the media, and the original is shown as "Removed" in the Polling tab. This is so that existing responses are not lost. But students will need to re-respond to the updated poll to receive credit.
To access embedded polls for editing
- In your library, use the filters and search box to find the interactive media containing the embedded polls you want to change.
Click on the media tile, then select Edit Polls from the media details page, as shown in the below figure.
The Embedded Polls tab appears by default, listing the polls currently resident in the media. It is identified in the below figure.
Click ON the embedded poll you want to edit. A preview of it appears in the playback section of the page, as shown in the below figure.
- If this is the poll you want, click the Pencil icon, identified in the above figure.
Click the menu button (ellipsis) on the poll and select Edit. This is also shown in the above figure.
- Use the Edit poll modal that appears to make your changes. If you have added or edited polling slides for presentation slide decks, this modal will look familiar. An example is shown in the below figure.
- Make the necessary changes to the Time placement, the Question text, the Answer options (if any), the marked correct answer (if any), and the response Options (if any).
- If appropriate, add or edit feedback for correct and/or incorrect responses, or more generalized feedback. The Feedback text is exposed to students after they submit their response.
- When finished, click Done.
Your changes are reflected in the embedded poll in the media. The original poll added to the media (in your library) is unchanged.
