Engage Students with Flipped Video Tasks

Engage Students with Flipped Video Tasks | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it
One of the major criticisms of this method though is that a dull unengaging content doesn't suddenly become engaging because it's on a video on the web, so how do we get students to engage with the content and make sure they watch it in a challenging and interactive way.

Vialogues is a useful tool for attempting to do this (though dull content will always be dull) because it enables you to create interaction around the video that actually gets students to think about and engage with the content.
Nik Peachey's insight:

A great way to create blended learning.
