How to add a Kaltura video quiz to Moodle

A Kaltura video quiz is a specially designed video which has the ability to include multiple choice questions at pre-determined points within the video. Whilst results are not integrated with the Moodle gradebook, questions can be utilised to further engage students and aid in reflection.
