How I Use It
Zaption allows teachers to download a video (from a variety of sites), and create an interactive video. A variety of questions can be inserted (true/false, short answer, multiple choice). You then publish the video. Students will go to your published video, watch it, and answer questions as they watch it. They can go back and re-watch if they need to. Once students complete the interactive video, analytics will provide the teacher with information indicating how many students took the quiz, how much time they spent watching it, and what their answers were. This would be a great tool to use for formative assessments.
I love this tool. Not only does it help students to be engaged while watching a video, it can also be used as a tool to flip a classroom. Being able to use this as a formative assessment tool is an added benefit to this site.
