Zaption - Video with Interactive Elements
We know that 21st-century learners are visual. They watch hours of video on television and online. Most teachers incorporate video into their lessons on a regular basis. Imagine if you could easily add interactive elements to that video!?!
Zaption is a website and app that allows you to use published video on the web or upload your own. As you watch the video, you had elements, like open-ended response, multiple choice, or text. Publish the video and assign it to your students or present it live in class. Videos can be shared via email, link, social media, or Google Classroom. The creator of the video lesson can view analytics to see how each participant answered the questions or responded. Those responses can be easily downloaded into a CSV file.
This is a perfect tool for blended learning, the flipped classroom, or just to spice it up a bit. Give it a try!
