Interactive Video Tool Evaluation

Last Updated: 08/22/2017

Overview

Interactive video tools allow instructors to build quiz questions and provide other scaffolding directly on top of video content. Most interactive video tools can be used with YouTube, or you can upload your own video content. As students are watching, the video will pause and a quiz question will appear. Often, you can require that students successfully answer the question before moving forward

Interactive video lessons support hybrid and online learning by allowing instructors to highlight and reinforce relevant content to students, and gauge students’ comprehension of that content for formative assessment. Many interactive video tools have features that allow a nuanced control of the viewer’s experience to support a more focused and engaged audience. Students appreciate the integration of the quiz within the video as a streamlined experience.

Interactive Video Tool Evaluation

OIT’s Academic Technology Design Team reviewed a number of Interactive Video tools, and is currently facilitating an expanded PlayPosit Pilot to determine which tool will best serve the needs of our campus. Contact the ATDT if you would like more information concerning the PlayPosit Pilot.
