Zaption - Interact With Video

Zaption - Interact With Video | technologies | Scoop.it
John Dalziel's insight:

Zaption is a tool for creating video-based quizzes.
Zaption allows practitioners to display questions for learners to answer as they watch a video.
To create a quiz on Zaption users start by creating a "tour" in their account.
A tour is a combination of videos, images, and text arranged into a sequence.
After choosing a video, just start watching it then pause it when you want to add a question.
You can add questions in the form of...
   - multiple choice,
   - open response, or
   - check box response.
When learners watch the video they will see your questions appear in the context in which you set them.
As I've said, Zaption tours can include images and passages of text along with your video.
Users can add questions over images and or between images and text.
Just take a look at the Zaption showcase for some great examples of Zaption tours that incorporate video, images, and text.
Zaption could be a great tool for creating flipped lessons to share with learners.
NOTE: learners do not have to have Zaption accounts in order to use the tours that you create; the free version of the service allows users to include one video per tour (they can have unlimited tours).

Smarthistory’s videos manage to reveal a great deal of emotional, technical, and historical knowledge on these and many other paintings and is an excellent resource for Art History and other Learners.
