How I Use It
I have started to flip my classroom and have used EduCanon to create short videos for my students to watch as a homework prior to coming to class. The multiple choice questions are a great way for my students to check their understanding while viewing the video. I really like how user friendly EduCanon is and that it doesn't take a long time to create videos with interactive questions. There is an upgrade fee to be able to ask free response questions and monitor students progress which makes EduCanon a little difficult to use for teachers that are on a budget.
My Take
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.
