I am making videos with quizzes to my students. I want to force them to take the quiz when they watch the video for the first time, but be allowed move freely back and forth when they want to review portions while studying for tests and semester exams. Is this possible?

make 2 versions of the video; one with quiz, the other with no quiz

not sure how you can "force" students to take the quiz; after they watch 1st time, they can just exit the video

I have a Windows Gold hosting account; 300 GB of file storage, 300 GB of monthly bandwidth; you will want a Windows hosting account regardless of who you use, because Windows server will work with the Camtasia video production files [the MP4 and all the support files, like the .html launchers]

FYI, when you share, or host on screencast.com, only the MP4 needs to be uploaded because the interactive content [TOC, captions, quiz, hotspots] are encoded within the MP4 itself as XMP data; when hosting on a Windows server web site, all the produced files will need to be uploaded [I have Camtasia output all into a sub folder, and simply upload the sub folder]

you will need an FTP app; there are many, some free, [like WS-FTP]; I use Beyond Compare 4 Pro [$49] because it supports so many screencasting tasks so well [file compares, after-upload patches, etc]

so yes, a site from Exabytes should do all you want, and more

regarding "preventing students from downloading", if they are able to "view" a video, they can copy it [as with virtually all media access over the web]; you can limit access using front-end apps that require passwords, but I personally know of no fool-proof method to lock down content

I will say that sc.com offers a type of security, but their hosting cost [per GB] are much higher compared to other host providers

regarding1 - Create a closed site where only students, parents, and admin can access, host the videos and other resources there.
anyone who gets a URL to some content can get to that content, unless you use a username/password front end; 

know who has visited my site
with a web hosting account, you will have a utility [web site panel] that will give you control over your uploaded files, as well as site statistics; those statistics [web site logs] will tell you who [by IP address] has hit the site, and which file was accessed, counts, etc

Hello kayaman, sorry I Venice for a while. I needed to reinstall Windows on my computer and it took me a week to get up to speed again. I've contacted exabytes and they suggested me to use a word press hosting service. Can you help me in understanding the difference between the word press hosting service and the hosting service you suggested?Thank you very much again,take care,Alex

I've never used Word Press.  WP enables you to create web site pages.  Maybe others here can offer suggestions re Word Press?

But as I understand your needs, all you need [initially?] is a site to host [park] your videos with quizzes; again, a Windows server shared site should suffice.

A web site is essentially a file system [like a hard drive directory] that lets others access its content as long as you give them access [to the content URLs]

To host a Camtasia video, you produce it [MP4 with smart player], you "upload" all the produced files [using an FTP app]; you give viewers the "URL" that points to the launch file [usually the URL to the xxx_player.html"]

If you want to design/present web pages [other than your Camtasia videos], then apps like Word Press can let you do that easily; I use free Visual Studio to make my web site pages

feel free to look at my company web site http://www.cookbookplus.com/

I have many software videos hosted on this site; they are all Camtasia productions with smart player; none of them needs anything like Word Press to work

however, I host all my Camtasia tutorials on Screencast.com because I don't have the room for them on my own web site

Thanks for the feedback.  I've checked your website, and it is cool.  I might even become a customer if I decide to get serious about my health.  :-)
I guess I understand better what you've suggested.  I might start using Wiki Spaces, like many of my friends do and host the videos in the windows server as you initially suggested.
Have a great holiday season.
