Equation editor in quizzes / LaTeX Support for Quizzing

Federico GalettoFederico Galetto Crackerjack
edited June 18 in Feature Requests

Hello!

I use the quiz feature in my Panopto recordings. It would be great if I could add equations and mathematical notation in my quizzes. It appears Google Forms are being used for quizzes and there are already existing add-ons that allow to insert equations in such forms, so it might be possible to integrate with Panopto. Bonus: if I could type in my equations using LaTeX, that would be wonderful!

Thanks,

Fred.

    Agreed. This is especially useful for engineering, math, and other technical subjects.

    LaTeX would be great. Any kind of markup would be better than none. I'm in physics and we can't even use units like meters-squared in the quizzes without resorting to funky looking ascii like m^2.

    I agree with Jason Detwiler. It is important to have LaTex. We are not able to write equations clearly using Panopto quiz. We are not able to add images or pictures to the quiz. Also sync the grad of Panopto quizzes on canvas is not available as far as I know. Please improve these features.

    I have had several faculty requesting this feature and the ability to add pictures to the quizzes. Please add this feature in your next release cycle.

    One of my instructors would also like her students to "answer numerically", I suspect she is also referring to using mathematical notation.

    I agree - adding equations in LaTex and / or MathJax notation would be really useful for our Maths based disciplines

    I've had this request from faculty - otherwise the quiz feature is useless to them.

    Several faculty have expressed an interest in using LaTeX for quiz questions.

    Currently this is not possible.

    The obvious extension of that would be allowing students to use LaTeX for their responses.

    If Panopto could support LaTeX, open responses, retakes (without clearing all results), and a limited number of views per viewer I would be much more willing to promote quizzing. Right now, there are just too many "gotchas" that most faculty are not willing to deal with. Those that can have generally liked the feature, but there have also been a few conversations where the above are non-starters. The new feature coming in v11 (to warn students if a quiz is linked to an LMS assignment, but they are viewing elsewhere) tells me that Panopto isn't just ignoring quizzing, but there is still a good bit of room for growth.

    This is a very important feature for us as well. Can you give us an update on if this is still under consideration?

    Many instructors in STEM would like this feature. They're currently looking at alternatives such as Edpuzzle that offers this feature. Please incorporate soon!
