Interactive Video: Best Practices


“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:

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

The easiest way to create your interactive project is with the Interactive Studio. It’s super simple and intuitive to use, but if you’d like to learn more, read the support article here.

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.
