Does anyone know how to create multiple choice questions when you create your own lesson?

I am attempting to create a new lesson using a youtube video- either one I find or one I create and I want to be able to create multiple choice questions which can be checked in the "think" section. All I can see is the option to create questions, but it appears they will be open ended only, or not be checked as multiple choice. I am new to this and was just checking it out to see if it would work as I will be flipping my classroom entirely this year. Thanks!

    Unfortunately, for the time being, there is no way to add your own Quick Quiz/Multiple Choice questions to a TED-Ed lesson. One of the things we are currently working on (we just finalized the design today!) is making a Quick Quiz/Multiple Choice question creator/editor. Building it is our #1 priority right now (in terms of development) and it should be released sometime in September.

    Please let me know if you have any additional questions/comments/concerns. Thanks!
    • Aug 1 2012: Thank you so much! That is great news as this would allow me to format my lessons for my flipped classroom the way I would like. I can't wait! :)

    Aug 1 2012: Well the short answer seems to be that you can't. I've just done a dummy run and you can only add the 'Think' questions which of course don't have the multiple-choice answers embedded. It would be worth contacting TEDEd to ask them if there is another way. Happy Flipping!
    • Aug 1 2012: Thank you- yes, I will do that. I thought I would check to see if I was missing something first. = )
  • Jul 31 2012: Oops! I meant in the quick quiz section. I see now that it is not even an option to do the quick quiz section at all. = (

      Aug 1 2012: I have just found out about TedEd myself today lol, so I have not explored its black magic yet. But I'll let you know if I find anything, whenever I get a chance to do it...
      • Aug 1 2012: Thank you!

          Aug 1 2012: Well, as far as I've figured out, I do not see any way of creating multiple choice questions. But, I guess for now, you could use an external resource as someone here suggested
  • Jul 31 2012: I am creating a new lesson on Ted ed using a youtube video. I can import it just fine, but when I edit the "think" section, I can only type in open ended questions- if you look at the Ted Ed lessons, they have multiple choice questions that can be graded by the website (which is useful when using this with your students). I would like to add in questions like that and not have them all open-ended.
