A picture speaks a thousand words - some good resources here for visual content and creation to add a visual dimension to your messages, which tend to perform much better for opens and clicks than text alone.

Goed lijstje met mogelijkheden van interactieve video

Goed lijstje met mogelijkheden van interactieve video | Online tips & social media nieuws |

"We take for granted that we can interact with text, but up until recently it’s been a challenge to interact (read/write/talk) with media...

Being able to interact with video allows us to personalize video-based instruction, by leading learners to the segment of video we like them to watch, by adding voice-overs, notes, pop-ups, screenshots, maps, references, pauses. It also allows learners to create video with even more depth and features and can the interaction can be used to support media literacy learning."

Bart van Maanen's insight:

Met meer mogelijkheden tot interactie met video's krijg je betere en persoonlijker betrokkenheid bij de inhoud. Door audio of voice-over toe te voegen of notities, kaarten enzovoort. Dat werkt natuurlijk prima in onderwijs of instructievideo's.

  • Created for educators, EDpuzzle allows teachers to set up classes, to assign specific video lessons and to engage students in creating their own video lessons.  Analytics share which students watch, when they last watched, and whether they watched at home or at school.
  •  Mozilla PopcornMaker is a powerful multiple-layer video editor that invites users to remix videos to include pop-ups, text boxes, images, maps (even in streetview), as well as Wikipedia articles that continue to update.
  • ThingLink for video,  looks so promising.
  • eduCanon is an interactive learning platform into which teachers may embed questions and any html object.  
  • TED-Ed lessons offer educators the opportunity to customize a TED video to meet their specific instructional needs.
  • Write-on Video is an iPad app that allows users to annotate and animate videos and pictures, by arranging the elements into storyboards and slideshows enhanced by free-hand drawing, text boxes, stamps, and sound clips.
