The basic version of this tool is free and allows up to 6 interactive elements to be added in a video. Zaption allows you to add interactivity (images, text, and questions) to existing online videos. It also has a "back stage" piece where you (instructors/instructional designers) can get immediate feedback on how viewers interact with content and understand key concepts.

Blended Learning: Creating Awesome Online Discussions

Blended Learning: Creating Awesome Online Discussions | Online Education | Scoop.it

Tim Robinson: If our students think that the discussion posting is useless and not at all entertaining. It likely means that it is useless and not at all entertaining. We know this because we often feel the same way when we have to make contrived discussions posts. It’s not that our jobs are about entertaining students, but we do need to do what we can do make it at least tolerable.

 

If we can expand our understanding of the tool to get beyond just ‘discussions’ but see it as a platform for other creative ways to explore a topic, we’ll find a much richer level of learning. We can, maybe, even have some fun with it.
