Flipped/Blended Classrooms: Zaption makes ordinary videos into interactive lessons.


One of the key components of a flipped/blended classroom is providing video based content for your students to view at home.  However, as educators, we know that a lot of students will just turn on a video and multi-task until they get to the end of the video, not really understanding the content.  What if we could make the videos more interactive?  Using Zaption, teachers can include multiple-choice questions, continuous polls, discussions and more to videos they pull from Vimeo, YouTube or their own computer.

Cost: Free for a 30 day trial.  $49/year after that.
Uses for the classroom: Use Zaption to annotate and make your videos interactive while engaging students.
