Creating student interaction with video

Submitted by on July 7, 2012 – 6:32 amOne Comment

Here are a few  ways of creating 2-way communication with video gathered from the YouTube Interactive: Flipped Conference 2012

1. If you have a blog or a website, you can embed both a YouTube video and a Google form on the same page/post (aligned vertically or horizontally). Students consume the media and then respond via short/long form. This could be combined with an embedded annotated video to give students quick self-assessment and then a final synthesis that is turned in digitally. Bare-bones example:

2. Annotations with Camtasia: The latest versions of Camtasia include the ability to create FLASH-based annotations that can be clicked once the video is exported and uploaded to Each clip can currently include a single annotation, so if you’d like to create more than one interactive opportunity, you will need to “split” your screen capture in Camtasia before uploading.

3. Ted-Ed flipped lessons: Ted Talks have a new education offshoot that allows users to embed multiple choice questions next to ANY existing YouTube video. If students log in to complete the assignment, analytics are available for the teacher.
