Below is a list of some practical web tools that you can use with your students to generate discussions around videos. Using these tools, you will be able to add interactive features to your videos, create video lessons and also design video quizzes to share with the class.They can also  be used for leveraging digital videos for learning by adding group interaction

1- Vialogues

Vialogue (Video + Dialogue ) is an online video with a group discussion feature. Vialogue allows users to interact with videos by adding time stamped comments to them. This can be a great tool for teachers to use with their students to get them engaged in video prompted discussions.To get started, upload a video, grab one from YouTube, or choose one from the growing collection on our site. Once you’ve created a vialogue, you can encourage thoughtful conversations by posing questions, adding polls, and replying to comments. You can even embed a vialogue into your website, LMS, or blog!

VideoNotes is a free web tool that allows students to take notes on a video they are watching. The notes are synchronized with the video being watched. The good thing about VideoNotes is that it is integrated into Google Drive which means that students will be able to save their notes directly to their Drive account and access, edit, and work on them anytime they want. All the notes are time-stamped.

3- Edpuzzle

This is a web tool I have just learned about from my colleague David Kapuler. Edpuzzle allows you to use only what you need from any video, insert audio notes or record over a video with your voice, and add questions at any point in the video and track your students' understanding.

4-Google Forms

Google Forms has made it possible for users to insert YouTube videos into their forms. You can now embed YouTube videos into forms and ask students questions to ensure they watch the video. Check out this guide to learn how more about how to insert videos into Google Forms.
