How to create Video Bookmarks for Progress Tracking

AccessAlly Pro contains a unique feature: the Video Bookmark. You can create video bookmarks for progress tracking. When you create a Video Bookmark and add it to a checklist, your users can click on it and be taken directly to the portion of the video you want them to watch.

You can use this for one video per page, for example, if it’s a really long video and you want to make it easier for people to skip to the right part or remember where they left off.

You can also add multiple videos to the same page, and have each bookmark start the correct video on the page.

Bookmarks & Video Objectives

In this video, you’ll see how to add video bookmarks (using a standard objective checklist), as well as how to mark a bookmark checklist auto-complete when a video reaches a certain point.

This tutorial example uses a YouTube video. You can also use a video hosted on Vimeo, Wistia, or your Amazon S3 account.

Optimize for the best viewing experience with CloudFront

You can enable mobile optimization and CloudFront to provide the best viewing experience for your clients by going to ProgressAlly > Videos > Settings

With Video Bookmark Progress Tracking, You Can…

With AccessAlly Pro’s video bookmarks and tracking abilities, you can track when someone gets to a certain point in a video, and even trigger events by applying a tag if that happens.

When would you want to use this? If you wanted to track video progress, and remind people that they haven’t completed a module you could email them a reminder. Or you could give “points” for completing a whole video. The possibilities are endless!
