“Interactive Lesson” (or interactive video) playback in LightSpeed VT is where a number of separate videos are woven together into an interactive experience. You can easily build your interactivity using the Interactive Studio.
Follow the workflow below to make these from scratch in 5 easy steps.
Step 1: Planning
Plan it out and write your scripts. You should first make a flowchart of what you want this interactive adventure to look like on paper, then write your scripts from that.
Here are some helpful guides to get started in the right direction:
- Filming Your Own Content
- Editing Interactivity
- Using the Interactive Studio’s built in Question & Button Overlay options? Download these visual guides to help you better frame the talent, before exporting your video files.
Step 2: Shoot the Video
It is really like shooting any other video, except there are two specific things to remember.
- 1st Fade in and Fade Out – only put a Fade in on the “intro” video, and only put a “fade-out” on the closing video.
- 2nd Leave at least 10 seconds of time for your loops when you have buttons up for the user to select.
Step 3: Upload Your Videos
This is a pretty simple step, just go in and upload them all to the Media Library. Once all the videos have finished encoding, you’re now ready to create your Interactive project.
Step 4: Create Your Interactive Project
Step 5: Add Your Interactive Project to a Chapter
Once you’ve published your Interactive Project from the Studio, copy the URL (or you can select this later) and head to Courseware Manager. After you’ve chosen the Course you’d like to add it to, find the Chapter in question and under Chapter Parts, either paste the URL or choose “Select From Library” to find your recently published project.
