This is the second post in a series of posts designed to help teachers wrap up the school year with engaging tech infused activities. The purpose is to keep students involved in learning until the last bell has rung. What I have for you today is a set of great web tools that you can use with students to create quizzes around videos. Most of these tools support the popular video hosting sites such as YouTube and Vimeo. And though there are minor differences between each tool, the overall process of creating a video quiz is almost similar.
TED Ed is a website that allows teachers to create lessons around YouTube videos. Teachers can select YouTube videos and use their URLs to add questions in different formats. The added value of this tool is that it has a section where teachers can track stats of how many have answered answers and how many students have seen the lesson. Check out this visual guide to learn more about how to created a video lessons using TED Ed.
Educanon is another powerful tool that teachers can use to design lessons based on videos from both YouTube and Vimeo. And like Teachem, teachers can generate questions on the content of videos and share it together with videos in a single lesson.
Blubbr is a cool web tool that allows users to create quizzes around YouTube videos. These are basically interactive video quizzes ( called Trivs ) that you can create for your students and which they can answer while they watch the selected video clip. The quizzes are also feedback supported meaning students will get feedback as they answer each question.
