In this study, the aim was to design a video player with embedded quizzes to enhance students' interactions with video learning materials and enable them to derive maximum benefit from these materials. The developed tool is integrated into the Moodle learning management system and presents questions from a question bank to students at predetermined time intervals set by the instructor. Additionally, it records interactions between the student and embedded quizzes, such as the number of attempts and the number of correct or incorrect answers. Furthermore, students' video interactions, encompassing actions like play, pause, and seek, are also stored in the database. The tool allows instructors to export 15 features related to students' videos and embedded quiz interactions. Consequently, students can assess their comprehension of the content they are viewing and receive immediate feedback, while instructors can access summary reports for all students. This enables them to find out how many students have watched the videos and their responses to the questions before or after the class. This paper explains the development process of the tool and presents findings from a pilot study utilizing the tool. The results of the pilot study revealed that students' video-watching behaviors in interactive videos differed from those in non-interactive videos. An interactive video player that allows embedding quiz questions to support formative assessment in online learning environments, can be advantageous for researchers, instructors, and learners.
