Zaption - Making Video Interactive | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

Zaption, a San Francisco based tech startup, is revolutionizing online video for education. Teachers, trainers, and content publishers use Zaption’s intuitive web app to quickly add images, text, quizzes, and discussions to existing videos from YouTube, Vimeo and private video libraries.

The teacher can add questions, quizzes, text, polls to the video and involve students in interactive learning experience.

You get a free 30-days trial period to explore the tool.

Allows you to take a YouTube or other video and create an interactive lesson from it. Free for one month, but then over $600 a year if you want to use with up to 200 students.

Why Historical Maps Still Matter So Much, Even Today

Why Historical Maps Still Matter So Much, Even Today | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

With 150,000 or so old print maps to his name, David Rumsey has earned his reputed place among the world's "finest private collectors." He continues to expand his personal trove as well as the digitized sub-collection he makes open to the public online — some 38,000 strong, and growing.


He's created a series of interactive maps that layer old prints onto the Google Earth and Google Maps platforms, and this summer he plans to launch a geo-referencing tool (similar to one recently introduced by the British Library) that lets users get involved in the digital mapping process themselves.

While preparing for this next expansion of his online map empire, Rumsey remains fascinated by "the power of putting these images up and letting them go," he says.

"Maps have a way of speaking to people very straightforward," he says. "You don't have to have a lot of knowledge of map history or history in general. To me they're perfect tools for teaching history to the public."

This looks interesting but it would be useful to have a bit more information about it and a demo of how it works. I like the 'blackboard' style used in the video!

IntuiFace is an amazing innovative platform with multi-touch, gesture recognition features for creating interactive presentations. There are examples and tutorials to help you get started.

Incredible but there is a free version which lets you explore the software and see if it is right for you.

 

Thanks for the suggestion to Paolo Tosolini.

DebateGraph

DebateGraph | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

description by Internet Scout Project


DebateGraph states, "to change the world you need to look at it in a different way." Many would agree; this platform gives multiple partners the ability to visualize and share different ideas. It's a neat concept and it's one that has been used by the United Kingdom's Foreign Office and CNN. A helpful "how-to" area can get users started and the application allows visitors to link ideas visually via a very easy-to-use interface. This version of debate graph is compatible with all operating systems

Jim Lerman's insight:

An online, interactive, collaborative mind-mapping tool. Looks quite versatile.
