What are Hotspots?
Hotspots are a great way to deliver content to your viewers and allow for viewer interaction throughout your video without breaking the flow of a video. Hotspots can be added text included in your video as a way to deliver content, such as including some factual information. They can also include a link to an outside source such as:
- Another video
- A form/survey
- A shared Google Doc
- An article
- A pdf
- A citation
Hotspots can also take viewers to a different time point in a video.
