In the video, "populateIdWithHTML" is the name of the method defined in quiz_ui.js on line 28. It takes an element ID and a string containing HTML code as arguments, and assigns the innerHTML property of the specified element using the string.

The name itself is an abbreviated description of the function the method performs, chosen with the intention to make the code self-documenting.
