You can use this free tool to create timed mutile choice quizzes based around one or more YouTube videos.

BI Media Specialists's curator insight, November 1, 2013 1:12 PM

This is one of my favorite finds this month! You can create trivs (short videos) and then create timed-multiple choice quizzes to do with them. You can also create questions to go with YouTube videos. This would be a great instructional resource for classes with iPads or BYOD policies.

Phraseum - language learning online

Phraseum - language learning online | En mi Vida:  TEFL + art + music + travel + sustainability + children | Scoop.it

The Web offers huge opportunities to improve any foreign language you’re learning, from news stories, blog posts, comments and all that content. So, find sites with your favourite topics and read them regularly. Phraseum will help you save and organize all useful sentences you come across while reading, in order to learn them later.
You can organize your clips by tags (situation, meaning …) and personal categories (your projects, meetings …)
You can also search for and re-save phrases that others have saved
or discover phrases that match the topics of your interests in your Phrase feed.

A clipper tool that looks to have great potential for learners to use the web systematically for vocabulary expansion

carldowse's curator insight, January 18, 2:18 AM

Vocabulary builing tool with a web clipper that can be added to a browser for quick additions to a tagged phrasebook - looks like a very interesting use of browser technology that promotes learner autonomy

Amadeu Marin's curator insight, June 7, 5:23 AM

Excellent idea! A fantastic tool to build up a collection of useful chunks or phrases around topics, situations, etc.

 

LEARNING TIP:

Phraseum provides what they call a 'clipping button' that you

drag onto your browser bookmark bar. Then, while you're reading online, you can highlight a piece of text (collocations, chunks, idioms, etc.) you want to clip, then hit the Phraseum clipping button to save and categorize the phrase into your account to learn or use later.

 

You can also share the phrases and phrasebooks you create and subscribe to other people's.
