Introducing Interactive Videos For WordPress

Updated on September 26, 2022

Adding videos to courses, sales pages, and tutorials can be a great way to increase engagement. But, until today, you needed expensive and clunky 3rd party tools to create interactive videos.

With our new Interactive Video block, you can easily pause a video and display additional content such as quiz questions, lead generation forms, product add-to-cart buttons, and links to more information.

Best of all, Interactive Videos can be added to any WordPress page or post. You don’t need to create courses to add our blocks to your site.

How Does It Work?

You can create an interactive video in less than a minute. You will need the Sensei Blocks or Sensei Pro plugin enabled (more on that below).

First, add or choose a video from YouTube, Vimeo, or VideoPress.

Paste the link to your video in the WordPress editor, or add it using the Video block.

Click the new Break Point icon, and choose when you want the interactive content to appear. A modal will open up where you can add any available block.

You can create as many break points in one video as you’d like.

An Evolution In Video Courses

We built Interactive Videos for use in online courses. While we quickly realized there are uses beyond learning, using the new block with Sensei LMS takes video courses to the next level.

  • Add quiz questions and check student learning before continuing a video.
  • Enable video course progression and require videos to be watched to complete a lesson.
  • Use the required blocks feature to make individual break points in a video be interacted with to continue playback.
  • With block visibility, hide or show different videos in course sales pages and lessons based on if the user has completed a course, is logged in, and more.

See It In Action

Here’s a video review of Sensei that community member Joe Casabona recently created. We’ve added a few interactive elements to the video for you to experience.

Video progress: 0%

Share Discount Codes

Joe mentions a coupon code in his video, but with Interactive Videos, you can add buttons to check out and give a chance to copy the code directly.

And good news!

You can get 20% off all Sensei products using the code videos when checking out!

Add Any Content

Joe shared our ‘Learning Mode’ distraction-free course experience. Here’s an example of adding our Image Hotspots block to a video to help drive home concepts.

Logo & Branding

Add a logo or icon for easy branding of your course.

Progress Bar

The progress bar informs students of how many lessons they have completed.


Consistent navigation helps students know what to do next.


Engage students with content like sliders, videos, accordions, flashcards, and more.

Custom Block Area

Add links, contact info, advertisements, and more in this area.

Add Content At The End

Place a modal with additional resources, a contact form, or a quiz when a video finishes playing.

Glad to hear it! Be sure to share with us how it goes!

No worries, let us know if you have any questions we can help with.
