design video

The tool integrates smoothly with Edmodo. Careful selection of and previewing of video takes a significant amount of teacher time, but the raised level of student engagement is worth it. Educanon provides teacher analytics on each question and student. The quality of the pedagogy depends upon the teacher. Another consideration is access to broadband. Streaming video for each students on 1:1 devices requires reliable broadband at school.

Want students to really think about YouTube videos? Try PlayPosit!

I like that PlayPosit lets you utilize (most) YouTube videos and that it allows you to write your own questions that pop up when students are watching the video. It adds a level of interactiveness that a worksheet on the side does not (actually physically pausing the video at just the right moment for reflection). The 'monitoring' or grading of the video is a little clunky, especially if you wanted to use it with a large class. Also, some videos won't upload and students experience the occasional glitch.

A great tool to use for teachers who want to start flipping their classroom!

Overall, I think EduCanon is a great resource for teachers to use to start flipping their classroom. I like how easy it is to import a video from a variety of sites like YouTube, Vimeo and Khan Academy. EduCanon could serve teachers better if there was a way to bookmark times while viewing the videos with out having to type in the questions right away. Also EduCanon could serve students better if more features were available with the free version because not all schools would be able to pay the premium fee to use the free-response, library and monitoring gradebook features.

Very user friendly, only allows for multiple choice questions in the free version. It's pretty neat!

I was disappointed that there was only multiple choice questions offered in the free version. Overall, this is a great product, I would recommend giving it a try!
